The subject discusses principles of the telecommunication systems both digital transmission systems and digital switching systems. The subject will allow students to gain overview in broad telecommunication domain and they will be able to solve partial problems related with network traffic. Furthermore, students will also obtain knowledge in VoIP technology, QoS and signaling systems that are used in modern wired and wireless networks.
