The subject deals with telecommunication networks from different viewpoints, explaining their physical principles and structure as well as applications. It introduces basic terms and principles of information transmission, services of telecommunication networks, quality of services, traffic engineering and dimensioning of network elements. The application of these principles and methods is demonstrated on the existing communication networks - ISDN, data transmission networks, fixed and mobile networks.


In order to obtain the credits, students have to meet the following conditions:

1) Be successful in the test.
