Annotation This course deals with transmission systems (TS), their evolution and application in modern telecommunications networks. Topics include signal digitalisation and transmission, regeneration of a digital signal and its conversion back to the analogue form. Formation and multiplexing of digital streams, as well as network synchronisation are examined. The course covers the theory of TS, as well as practical measurements in the laboratory. International standards related to TS interfaces are considered. Students are prepared for professional career and further studies at the Master’s level. .
Goals and objectives
