Networking concepts are difficult to explain, even through careful description and well thought out examples. One useful teaching method is enabling the networking professional to visualize how networks work by using a software tool that simulates network functions. The Network Simulation Experiments Manual provides just such a tool by allowing the reader to download free, easy-to-install OPNET software. This software provides a virtual environment for modeling, analyzing, and predicting the performance of IT infrastructures, including applications, servers, and networking technologies. The book also goes a step further by providing detailed experiments on core networking topologies for use in this simulation environment. Each experiment is also accompanied by review questions, a lab report, and exercises.
*Comes with directions for downloading free, easy-to-install software based on that used by thousands of commercial and government organizations worldwide
*Useful experimentation for professionals in the workplace who are interested in learning and demonstrating the capability of evaluating different commercial networking products
*The experiments in this manual are closely tied to Peterson/Davie: Computer Networks, fourth edition (a best-selling Morgan Kaufmann title), making it a perfect companion book.

Networking technologies and concepts are often difficult to explain, even through careful description and well thought out examples. One method for making this information "stick" is to create an environment where networking professionals and students can visualize how networks work by utilizing a software tool that simulates the functions within a network. The tool itself is highly useful in that it provides a virtual environment for an assortment of desirable features such as modeling a network based on specified criteria and predicting its performance.
The Network Simulation Experiments Manual takes this instructional tool a step further and provides detailed experiments on core networking topologies for use in this simulation environment. Various scenarios are presented within each topology: Review questions, a lab report, and exercises accompany each assignment as well. The manual also comes with directions for downloading the free and easy-to-install OPNET IT Guru Academic Edition software. This software provides a virtual environment for modeling, analyzing, and predicting the performance of IT infrastructures, including applications, servers, and networking technologies.
Prepared by Professor Emad Aboelela of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, the experiments in the manual are closely tied to the organization of Computer Networks: A Systems Approach, 4e, and when used together, serve as a complete tool for understanding how and why computer networks function as they do.
