Lernergebnisse

Telecommunication is an integral part of today's life. People are used to communicate with any person they would like to by phone, e-mail, chat, or skype at any time at any place. Students in this lecture will learn the basic characteristics of different communication networks. In a bottom-up approach, starting from the physical medium going up to the application, they are introduced into the functionality of different communication layers and protocols and understand how these cooperate to achieve a communication service. Hence, they know different aspects of quality of service the users can expect from different protocols, and are able to specify protocols on their own based on the according protocol mechanisms. As the lecture deals with different networks (telephone network, Internet, mobile communication networks, broadband access networks), the students can characterize these networks and explain the differences.

  3. Protocol specification: finite state machine, message sequence chart
  4. Tranmission technique: physical signals, analog and digital signals, codes, multiplexing
  5. Switching Technology: circuit switching (space division, time division), store and forward (message switching, packet switching [virtual connection, datagram])
  6. Interconnection of networks: repeater, hub, bridge, switch, router, gateway
  7. Digital Voice Communication [Integrated Services Digital Network ISDN]: reference model, signaling, protcols, subscriber installation, subscriber line, plesiochronous digital hierarchy, synchronous digital hierarchy
  8. Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)/ General Packet Radio Service (GPRS): reference model, channels at the air interface, signaling, circuit switching vs. packet switching, security
  9. Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS): reference model, code division multiple access, migration to LTE
  10. Connection-oriented Public Data Networks: reference models, X.25, Frame Relay, Asynchronous Transfer Mode, virtual circuits and quality of service
