The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the most important technologies of mobile telecommunications and the possibilities and problems of their implementation (integration). It discusses mobile technologies only at the level of functional units and referenced functions, it does not go into the details of individual functions. The purpose of the integration section is to show how the application and backbone segments of the mobile access network can be implemented and how this is supported by fixed technologies. We also discuss the following problems related to integration: modeling and quantifying transmission requirements, designing solutions that meet the requirements and adapt to the applicable technologies.
