The course is oriented to audio or video issues in telecommunication networks, both fixed and mobile. Students will learn principles of switching systems and their management as well as the course will provide them with an overview of signaling systems in central exchanges and networks. The focus is on digital switching systems as circuit as packet switch oriented, i.e. so-called next generation network (NGN) and voice communication in 4G networks. (VoLTE).
