Course Description

Simulations of Telecommunication Systems

Program

Information and Communication Technologies, third-level study programme

Lecturers:

prof. dr. Aleš Švigelj

Goals:

To acquaint students with the advanced concepts, techniques and practical aspects of the development and analysis of simulation models and computer simulations of telecommunication systems.

In particular, the course will be concerned in its practical aspects with advanced discrete event simulation.

Content:

Advanced computer simulation concepts

Probability and stochastic processes

Advanced modelling of telecommunication networks:
analytical approach
discrete-event driven approach
hybrid approach

Discrete event simulators

Statistical analysis of simulation results:
statistical measures for simulation
verification of simulation model
validation of simulation model
