CSE-843 Performance Analysis of Communication Systems
Campus RCMS
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Performance Analysis of Communication Systems
Course Code CSE-843
Credit Hours 3-0
Course Objectives This course will introduce the use of stochastic Petri nets in communications systems engineering and the analysis techniques and algorithms used in performance evaluation. Stochastic models are used for developing and comparing systems. In particular, stochastic Petri nets and non-Markovian models will be taught. After the course the student will be able to analyse design, carry out optimization and evaluate modern day wireless, cellular and satellite communication systems.
