Advanced wireline communications systems appears to be a technology that will revolutionize the internet (LANs and WANs) in the next few years by removing bandwidth bottlenecks and eliminating delays. It is clear that the data traffic will play a dominant role in the near future. At the same time the traditional telecom and datacom worlds are converging. The primary players in this field including fiber optics, twisted pairs and coaxial cables are expected to explore in the next few years. Optical networking technologies are becoming red hot. The opportunities promise to be huge. Gigabit and 10Gigabit Ethernet are also the latest steps in the evolution of the world’s most popular LAN. This paper will find the areas of blending various wireline communications systems for best results.

The significant progress in these technologies, especially in fiber optics, has put new demands on the job duties of engineers and technologists. Industries are increasingly seeking graduates with appropriate background and training in these technologies. This paper describes a proposed advanced communications course in the form of lecture and laboratory studies. This course is designed for the study of various wireline communications systems in correct proportion as identified by the industry. Such studies provide specific skills that will be immediately usable in the industry. Knowledge of these crucial fields will broaden the undergraduate experience of technology and enhance their employment opportunities very greatly
