Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

KI875 Computer Science and Communication Systems, Master, ASPO 01.04.2016 , semester 1, optional course
PIM-WN20 Applied Informatics, Master, ASPO 01.10.2011 , semester 2, optional course

Suitable for exchange students (learning agreement)
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Horst Wieker

Learning outcomes:
Modern telecommunications has become a strategic factor for modern companies and is one of the fastest growing markets today. Modern call-centre applications exploit the full range of options offered by telecom networks. The telecommunications applications are supported by so-called intelligent networks (INs). IN platforms are used to incorporate new complex services into the telecom network. IN platforms are now being used not only in mobile and fixed network applications, but also in the internet. IN applications are network-independent. A major benefit of intelligent networks is that they have been completely specified by the ITU. Students will be taught about the architecture and operation of intelligent networks. This will involve redefining the term ‘service’ and learning how to describe service implementation in terms of processes.
