ECE 4614 - Telecommunication Networks (3C)
Architecture, technology, operation, and application of telecommunication networks including digital telephony, data networks, and integrated services networks. Design and analysis of networks for voice, data, and video applications.
Why take this course?
Computer networks are pervasive. Electrical and computer engineers must understand the architecture, technology and applications of such networks. In addition, they must understand how the existing telecommunications infrastructure is evolving to provide integrated voice, data, and video communications services that are critical to the operation and competitiveness of companies, government, and other organizations. The continued growth of the Internet has generated new applications and spurred the need for higher speed local access. Advances in telecommunications technology and applications has increased the demand for electrical and computer engineers possessing a systems-level understanding of present telecommunications networks and the forces shaping their future.
