EE2T21 Telecommunications B
Topics: Modulation, introduction to networksTransmission and distribution of information by means of telecommunication techniques and networks form the backbone of our society. As a follow-up on Telecommunications A (EE2T11), the following aspects will be treated in Telecommunications B:
Part 1. Telecommunication Techniques:
- modulation techniques to convert analog and digital information bearing signals onto signals suitable for transport over a guided (cable) or unguided (wireless) medium,
- quality of detection of these signals in the presence of disturbance due to noise,
- related system trade-offs that can be made.
- Part 2. Telecommunication Networks: an introduction to telecommunication networks like local networks, the Internet and telephony networks.
- bandpass signals and systems: complex baseband description, modulation, demodulation, generic transmitter and receiver concepts,
- linear analogue modulation techniques (AM, DSB, SSB),
- non-linear analogue modulation techniques (PM, FM),
- digital modulation techniques (OOK, FSK, BPSK, QPSK, MSK, CDMA and OFDM),
- signal-to-noise ratio before and after detection of analogue signals,
- matched filtering,
- bit error probability after detection of digital signals,
- the functionality needed to realize 'end-to-end' communication in a communication network,
- the different concepts needed to design a data communication network,
- understanding of the relations between these concepts in a network architecture and their mutual interactions.
