- Department of Telecommunications Engineering
The course covers the area of high-speed transmission of information in the access network level, with emphasis on the use of optical transmission media and its combination with metallic lines (FTTx). In the practical part, students will learn the methods required for the design, modeling, measurement and analysis of transmission media, diagnostics of systems and whole access networks.
General knowledge of telecommunication networks, eg. ín the scope of subject „Telecommunication Systems and Networks“. Welcome knowledge of characteristics of optical fiber and transmission of signals in optical networks.
