Postgraduate

Description

This subject aims to give students a thorough understanding of the physical layer of modern telecommunication systems. This includes systems that transmit through wires, free space (both terrestrial and satellite systems), co-axial cables and optic fibres. The subject focuses on current technologies such as Ethernet, broadband access technologies, passive optical networks, and to some extent, cellular wireless systems (although these are covered in much more detail in other subjects). The subject also provides a basis of understanding how these transmission systems are shaped by contemporary technologies and, in particular, how the internet-of-things is determining the next generation of challenges for transmission systems.

Typical availability
