Network Simulation Experiments Manual, Third Edition, is a practical tool containing detailed, simulation-based experiments to help students and professionals learn about key concepts in computer networking. It allows the networking professional to visualize how computer networks work with the aid of a software tool called OPNET to simulate network function. OPNET provides a virtual environment for modeling, analyzing, and predicting the performance of IT infrastructures, including applications, servers, and networking technologies. It can be downloaded free of charge and is easy to install.

The book’s simulation approach provides a virtual environment for a wide range of desirable features, such as modeling a network based on specified criteria and analyzing its performance under different scenarios. The experiments include the basics of using OPNET IT Guru Academic Edition; operation of the Ethernet network; partitioning of a physical network into separate logical networks using virtual local area networks (VLANs); and the basics of network design. Also covered are congestion control algorithms implemented by the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP); the effects of various queuing disciplines on packet delivery and delay for different services; and the role of firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs) in providing security to shared public networks. Each experiment in this updated edition is accompanied by review questions, a lab report, and exercises.

Networking designers and professionals as well as graduate students will find this manual extremely helpful.

  • Updated and expanded by an instructor who has used OPNET simulation tools in his classroom for numerous demonstrations and real-world scenarios
  • Software download based on an award-winning product made by OPNET Technologies, Inc., whose software is used by thousands of commercial and government organizations worldwide, and by over 500 universities.
  • Useful experimentation for professionals in the workplace who are interested in learning and demonstrating the capability of evaluating different commercial networking products, i.e., Cisco routers
  • Covers the core networking topologies and includes assignments on Switched LANs, Network Design, CSMA, RIP, TCP, Queuing Disciplines, Web Caching, etc.

From the Back Cover:

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 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, suggested readings, a lab report, and exercises accompanying each assignment.

Prepared by Professor Emad Aboelela of the Taibah University, Saudi Arabia, the experiments in the manual are closely tied to the organization of Computer Networks: A Systems Approach, Fifth Edition and, when used together, serve as a complete tool for understanding how and why computer networks function as they do. Key Features:

  • Updated and expanded by an instructor who has used OPNET simulation tools in his classroom for numerous demonstrations and real-world scenarios. 
  • Useful experimentation for professionals in the workplace who are interested in learning and demonstrating the capability of evaluating different commercial networking products, i.e., Cisco routers.
  • Covers the core networking topologies and includes assignments on Switched LANs, Network Design, CSMA, RIP, TCP, Queuing Disciplines, Web Caching, etc.

About the Author:

Dr. Emad Aboelela received his Ph.D in Computer Engineering from the University of Miami (Florida); M.Sc. and B.Sc in Computer Science and Automatic Control from the College of Engineering at Alexandria University (Egypt). Currently he is an Associate Professor at Taibah University, Saudi Arabia. He was a faculty member at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for six years and at Southern Connecticut State University for two years. Dr. Aboelela is a senior member of both IEEE and ACM. He received the Distinguished Professor of the Year Award in 2009 and the Award of Academic Merit in 1998.
