TFG   7531   Telecommunication Systems

3 Credit Hours.   3 Lecture Hours.   0 Lab Hours.

This course will provide students the ability to design a secure voice and data network for subscribers. A systems approach will be used to study telecommunications networks for the understanding of the function of individual components and subsystems. Attention will be given to the theory of different existing and emerging technologies. Students will receive an overview of public and private telecommunications systems, fundamentals of traffic engineering, switching, transmission, and signaling. Emphasis will be placed on the function of discrete components as well as complete systems.
