Table of contents


This course presents the Fundamentals of Digital Telecommunication Systems, which can generally be applied towards many different telecommunication systems and standards. The content is based on a course, which was given at UCSD – Extension by the author over several years, therefore a lot of student feedback is in fact applied to the course.   
This course is split into a total of 8 chapters, whereas for now 6 chapters are uploaded, with 2 more chapters to follow soon. The first chapter just gives a historical background of the development of telecommunication systems over time. The other chapters go into more technical details. Different modulation schemes are discussed, which are used in digital systems. Channel models which are used in some standards are discussed, which also are defined in some of the 3GPP standards. Mathematical and Simulation models using Matlab are presented, which help to develop algorithm for real applications are presented.
This course is highly recommended before you move forward with any of the other 3G, 4G, LTE, Satellite Communication or 5G telecommunication classes. It provides the fundamental knowledge, which allows you to understand the details of modern telecommunication systems.
Remark: The course is a ‘living’ document. We will update topics and improve over time and add at least two more chapters in the upcoming weeks and months. So even if you sign up today you should check back on a regular basis.
