Master Lab Course
"Multimedia Communications"

Hands-on communications (winter and summer term)

The aim of our Master lab course "Multimedia Communications" is to add the possibility for practical experience to our lectures and to get an overview of the institute's research fields.

In this course, students will

  • operate measurement devices such as oscilloscopes to record and analyze signals,
  • learn about physical properties of different transmission mediums, e.g. coaxial cable or the air,
  • set up experiments to decode captured signals,
  • perform simulations of communication systems,
  • get insights into communication standards like WLAN, DVB-S, 5G.

The lab course consists of six experiments exploring different data transmission technologies. The six independent on-site experiments are:

  • Coded Modulation (Forward error correction codes used in 5G)
  • Digital quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM)
  • Simulation of mobile and fixed communication systems
  • Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)
  • WLAN - Wireless Local Area Network
  • DVB - Digital Video Broadcast

We recommend this course only for students who attended at least one lecture of the Institute of Telecommunications.
