ELEC-E7410 - Communication transmission lines, 24.05.2021-23.06.2021

Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.

Content
• Valid 01.08.2020-31.07.2022:

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.
