In response to the needs of the ICT information technology market, the Department of Teleinformation Networks has established collaboration with the telecommunications industry company VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES, expanding its educational offerings to advanced technologies in access networks.

VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES S.A. is a leading telecommunications systems integrator in the international market with extensive experience in delivering solutions in the field of modern broadband network technologies. This includes collaborations with major operators across Europe and the USA. The company offers professional consulting services, deployment, configuration, and testing of next-generation access network technologies.

As part of the collaboration, VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES supported the launch of a modern broadband transmission system in the laboratory of the Department, initiated subscriber devices, and dedicated software for network configuration. Through this fruitful cooperation, they prepared and launched a laboratory station enabling the configuration of access networks and modern broadband services, providing an opportunity for future engineers to acquire additional skills essential for their future roles.

The prepared laboratory station is currently used in laboratory classes “Access and Core Systems Engineering” in the Teleinformation Networks profile. Further expansions are planned for the station and integration of the access network with the laboratory optical core network.

VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES also offered support in the educational process in the field of modern solutions for access network technologies. Within classes conducted in the Teleinformation Networks profile, VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES specialists shared their knowledge and experience with the University of Technology’s students. Company employees also serve as consultants for engineering and master’s thesis projects.

During his lecture on Passive Optical Networks, Maciej Muzalewski, the technical director of VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES, summarized the joint efforts:

"Collaboration with the Department of Teleinformation Networks at the Faculty of ETI is very important and mutually beneficial for us. We can complement the scope of practical knowledge conveyed to students or diploma recipients and enable them to have the most direct contact with modern access network technologies and market trends. This is to ensure that graduates in the Teleinformatics Networks profile, many of whom find employment in our company, are best prepared to take on new roles immediately after graduation."
