Course Title: Next Generation Optical Networks
ECTS points: 6 ECTS
Number of classes per week:3+0+0+3
Lecturer: Prof. d-r. Borislav Popovski
Course Goals (acquired competencies): Upon finishing the course it is expected that the student will be able to solve problems related to the design of optical networks, to demonstrate an understanding of wavelength routing and switching and how it can be utilized to increase the capacity of a network, and be prepared to perform scientific work in the area of optical communications.
