Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Mastering of transmission theory and measurements including the properties and use of transmission lines.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Cables and optical fibres in telecommunication networks. Open generic cabling in access networks. Electromagnetic properties of cables, theory of crosstalk and screening/shielding including practical solutions.

Maxwell´s Equations and Wave Equations, that form the foundation for theoretical studies of properties and EM screening/shielding of communications lines and cables. Also, the so called Telegrapher’s Equations can be directly derived from Maxwell´s Equations. EM Compatibility (EMC), Digital Dividend/LTE (Long Term Evolution) and coexistence of radio and cable networks.
