Course detail

Services of Communication Systems

FEKT-MPC-SKSAcad. year: 2023/2024

The course deals with services provided by modern telecommunications systems. Students will gain the necessary knowledge of technologies that are still used, although not as a priority, ie with ISDN services and Asynchronous ATM mode. However, emphasis is placed on contemporary technologies such as xDSL (ADSL, SDSL, HDSL, VDSL) and on the SS7 signaling system connected to modern transmission, the TMN Telecommunications Control Network and the quality of QoS service. The content also includes Internet Protocol version 6, IPv4 connectivity, OSI reference model versus TCP / IP network architecture. Other parts are devoted to passive optical networks PON, the use of integer programming in current networks and WDM multiplex.

Entry knowledge

A student who enrolls in a course should be able to:
- explain the basic concepts of converged communication networks,
- define the properties of Ethernet networks,
- name the laws of IPv4,
- express the characteristics of multimedia services,

In general, bachelor's degree knowledge is required.
Work in the laboratory is conditioned by a valid qualification of "employee knowledgeable for independent activity" according to Vyhl. 50/1978 Coll., Which students must obtain before the start of teaching. Information on this qualification is given in the Dean's Directive Familiarization of students with safety regulations. 

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

0-15 points for activity in laboratories.
0-15 points for the elaboration of a PowerPoint study on a selected topic from PON,
0-70 points for a written exam with the support of e-learning, a compulsory part for passing the course, optionally an oral exam with written preparation.
The exam is focused on verifying the orientation in the issues of communication network services with a focus on the quality of service and the issues of passive optical networks PON.

Attendance at laboratories is compulsory, justified absence can be made up after prior arrangement with the instructor.


The aim of the course is to provide students with an extended orientation in the services of communication systems with a focus on the quality of QoS service and to focus on the development of passive optical networks. 

The graduate of the course is able to:
- analyze the services provided by modern communication networks,
- theoretically analyze technologies related to xDSL services,
- justify the current state of use of ISDN,
- summarize ISDN features,
- compare ATM and other high-speed transmission options,
- assess the creation of ATM cells in relation to services,
- design signaling using SS7,
- categorize the quality of QoS services,
- describe the possibilities of the TMN Telecommunication Control Network,
- analyze the topology of Passive Optical Networks PON and the method of communication in them,
- assess the activation process of the terminal unit in the GPON network,
- use integer programming in current networks,
- analyze IP transmission of Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks,
- compare IPv6 in relation to IPv4 and the OSI reference model versus TCP / IP network architecture.
