The purpose of the course is to introduce methods to predict the real-time behaviour of service systems, especially for telecommunucation systems.

The course treats real-time properties of communication systems. The students learn to predict the performance of systems, which also gives the ability to improve and optimise systems.

The course contains an overview of elementary queuing and queuing network theory and also introduces discrete event simulation. In queuing theory methods to calculate the average time a customer spends in a queue and the blocking probability are treated. In queuing network theory Jackson networks are studied. Discrete event simulation using a general programming language is studied.
