Official Course Description:
Starting from basic knowledge in Digital Communications, this course will discuss Digital Subscriber Line transmission in quite some detail, still providing insights into counterpart wireless transmission schemes, such as WLAN and DVB-T. In order to obtain the basic foundation for digital communications, the course discusses matched filter, whitened matched filter, equalizer structures (linear, DFE, Tomlinson-Harashima) and equalizer adaptation with zero forcing and MMSE/LMS.We will apply these concepts to baseband and single-carrier transmission. Multicarrier transmission (OFDM/DMT) as the most current technology in wireline and wireless transmission will be treated thoroughly.
The wireline channel will be highlighted. Starting from channel properties of twisted pair and coaxial cables, all current wireline transmission methods will be studied in detail. Although the focus will be on twisted-pair transmission, cable modems (including hybrid fiber-coax) will be touched, as well. In xDSL and cable modems, we find almost every transmission method, like PAM, QAM, CAP, and multicarrier.
