The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
4V (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 1
Mandatory course: yes

KI720 (P222-0065) Computer Science and Communication Systems, Master, ASPO 01.04.2016 , semester 1, mandatory course
PIM-WN25 Applied Informatics, Master, ASPO 01.10.2011 , semester 1, optional course, not informatics specific
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).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
KI833 Traffic Control and Traffic Management

Module content:
Protocols traditionally play a key role in communications technology. They are regarded as central components of the software used in communications devices. Protocols are standardized procedures and rules for exchanging data between communications systems. They include descriptions of the interfaces, data formats, timing and error-correction procedures.
The following protocol standards will be dealt with in detail:
1.        Routing protocols
2.        SNMP
3.        SIP
4.        RADIUS
5.        H.323
6.        SS7
7.        SCCP, ISUP, TCAP, INAP
8.        SS7 in mobile networks
