Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The goal of the subject is to teach the students the basic properties of modern communication systems and methods of optical communication and understanding the reasons of their application in various types of networks. The students obtain also practical experiences with the application of software for simulation and with measurements and applications of components for OCS.
Course contents:
Clasification and characterisation of OCS. Optical fibers and cabels for OCS. Receivers and transmitters for OCS. Repeaters and optical amplifiers in OCS. Coherent and all-optical OCS. Channel multiplexing and circuits switching in OCS. Topologies of OCS - LAN, MAN, WAN and GAN. Optical distribution networks. Trends in OCS development.
