Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Understand the principles of modeling and dimensioning of telecommunications networks. Learning outcomes are set so that students are able to identify, apply, and solve problems in the field of modeling and to the dimension of telecommunications networks.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The student will be acquainted with the issue of public service systems (SHO) used in telecommunications technology. They will also understand the problems of operational load; they will also understand the meaning of the 1st and 2nd Erlang equations and the concepts of QoS and QoE. As part of network modeling, they will learn to work with OMNeT
