Summary
The subject introduces the students to the communication systems commonly used in the corporate sphere. It presents the possible ways of interconnecting the telecommunication systems with other common services. Students are then able to design complex information systems providing the large scale of additional features and services, which are not possible to implement with plain telecommunication infrastructure. During the course, students practically configure common IT services, create custom-built IT solutions based on them, and learn how to protect these solutions against unexpected system failures.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Students are taught how to create complex information systems on top of standard telecommunication solutions with narrow focus on the services commonly used in corporate networks.
