Prerequisite
Fundamental knowledge of public switched telephone network (PSTN) and public data network (PDN). Analytical and mathematical knowledge.
Rationale
ME students of EC Engineering need to have good understanding of the fundamentals and application of telecommunication networks i.e. PSTN, PDN and ISDN i.e. the process of total digitalization of telecommunication networks. They will be able to understand recent topics like time division switching systems, data networks, ISDN, voice data integration and fiber optic communication systems and networks.
Course Outcome
After completing this course students shall able to:
1. Describe the need for switching systems and their evolution from analogue to digital.
2. Describe the Public Switched Telephone Network.
3. Describe private networks.
4. Describe integrated networks.
5. To compare telephone network, data network and integrated service digital network

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
