Objectives and competences

The objective of the course is to provide an overview of the evolution of traditional communication networks toward convergent, interactive, multimedia packet networks.

To deliver the means to introduce new services in network. Overview of IMS, EPS, 5G and 6G architectures, protocols, and standardization.

To provide an overview of examples of digital services and applications in various domains.

To demonstrate practical approaches for development of Web and other convergent services.

Teaching and learning methods

Lectures for theoretical aspects, laboratory exercises and team-work for real-case scenarios and problem solving through project work. . Part of the pedagogical process will be carried out with the help of ICT technologies and the possiblities they offer. Study visits and invited lecturers.

Expected study results
