Network Modeling and Performance (Postgraduate/Undergraduate)

This module develops probabilistic solutions to the problems of information loss and delay in modern, broadband packetised networks. It should be of interest to all students interested in networking and communications, with a particular emphasis on Internet performance and design. The module stresses the appreciation and use of queueing theory, but develops the subject in a simple and intuitive manner, avoiding transform techniques. The use of queueing network simulation as a tool for network performance modelling is also addressed using Opnet Modeler. This module aims to give participants an understanding of basic probabilistic and queueing theoretic techniques and solutions, simulation methods, and detailed methods for broadband traffic control in packetised networks.

Signals and Information (Undergraduate)

This first year module introduces the fundamentals of signals, Fourier Series, information theory and signal statistics. Topics covered include: signal fundamentals such as discrete versus continuous time signals; signal average, energy and power; orthogonality; Fourier Series. The module also provides an introduction to information theory, including the information measure, entropy and the binary symmetric channel. Basic ideas in statistics will also be introduced. It will be taught by a combination of lectures, tutorials and labs.

Telecommunication Systems (Undergraduate)

This module provides a broad background to modern telecommunications systems and the underlying theory, including mobile networks and the Internet.
