Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The scope is acquaint students with knowledges from various transmission systems utilized in telecommunication transport networks from a viewpoint of network elements and topologies, synchronization provisioning, strategies of the traffic protection and restoration. The study is focused on new technologies and hierarchies in transport networks - NG-SDH, CE, SyncE and OTH - of converged NGN networks.
Course contents:
Basic arrangement of communication system. Comparison of analog and digital methods of the transmission of information, FDM and TDM transmission systems - block diagrams (meaning of particular blocks). Time sampling, sampling of the first kind, sampling of the second kind.
Quantization in value. Linear quantization, non-linear quantization, quantization distortion, calculation of quantization distortion, compression characteristics, advantage of compression, coding methods in digital transmission systems.
Digital modulations. PCM modulation, DPCM modulation, Address coded modulation. Summary of digital modulations utilized in digital trasnmission systems.
End equipments in digital transmission systems. Encoders - by quantization steps, by bits, by code groups. Decoders - Shannon decoder, Shannon-Rack decoders, linear weighting decoder. Non-linear PCM encoders.
SDH technology and SDH networks. Evolution of digital transmission systems. Hierarchical process, multiplexing principles and building blocks, signal frames. Transport layer of the SDH network - path, line, section. Network elements, network topologies.
