Optical Communication System Design
Optical communications systems underpin the Internet’s ability to carry ever increasing volumes of data. This module provides an introduction to the technology behind such systems and how they are deployed in real life.
Students on this course will gain skills in analysing the transmission performance and assessing network configuration parameters. They will design and analyse a basic optical communications system and analyse how wavelength division multiplexing system parameters impact on capacity.
Taken on its own the module provides key skills that are immediately applicable in the ICT field. It can also be taken as a sample of what is on offer for the (MSc in Electronic & Computer Technology) and credits obtained in this module can be applied to the programmes at a later date.
