Lecturer: Dr. Roland SchingnitzTeaching Assistant: Dr. Giang Nguyen


This course provides consolidated knowledge on basic principles of communication systems, protocols and technologies. Students should be enabled to understand those systems, to estimate trends of development, evaluate systems regarding special criteria and derive decisions for application. After a short introduction and revision of substantial basics, the course focuses on currently deployed integrated packet networks. Furthermore advanced principles and technologies will be observed. The exercises will be used for consolidation of theoretical knowledge and hands-on practice in using evaluation tools and network programming.
