Simulation technology provides an effective means of creating a virtual environment that replicates a real live environment effectively. Simulators have been used in all types of industries ranging from the aviation industry to construction. This program brings the simulation technology to networks and has been used to simulate all types of networks efficiently. The application is designed to be multi-purpose and has been applied to various kinds of simulations such as querying networks, wireless networks, ad-hoc networks, peer-to-peer, business process simulations, and many others.
This program is useful for protocol modeling, hardware architecture validation, and performance analysis of complex software systems. It provides the user with vital components such as reusable blocks that can be used to simulate infrastructure. The various modules which are made up of C++ classes are connected using gates ad communicates with message passing technique. Other parts are message classes, dynamic modules creation, scheduling can cause cancellation of events, distribution estimation, random number generation, and many more.
The program gives the user many tools useful for network simulation.
