The subject discusses principles of telecommunication systems - mainly digital transmission systems and digital switching systems. The subject will provide students with the overview of the entire telecommunication domain, so that they can solve particular problems related to network traffic. They will also obtain basic knowledge of technologies that are used in modern wired and wireless networks. Results of the survey (students' opinions) concerning the subject can be found here: /cz/anketa/aktualni/courses/AE2B32TSI

Study targets:
