The lab exercises contained in the network simulation experiments manual are based on the OPNET simulator (v. 9), a network simulation tool that was originally developed at M.I.T. It provides networking professionals with the option of implementing experiments from their homes or workplaces and the lab manual comes with directions for downloading the free easy-to-install software (special version to this book only--see system requirements below). These labs run through simulations closely tied to the material in the text so that you can visualize the discussions covering core network topologies. Various scenarios are presented within each topology, and review questions and a lab report exercise accompany each lab experiment. The experiments also follows the organization of Computer Networks, Third Edition, by Larry Peterson and Bruce Davie.

Book Description:

Lab manual that runs through simulations based on OPNET software and that is closely tied to the material in Peterson/Davie's COMPUTER NETWORKS, so that you can visualize the discussions covering core network topologies.

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 done by creating an environment where networking professionals and students can visualize how networks work, 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 easy-to-install software, the OPNET IT Guru Academic Edition. 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, 3e, and when used together are a complete tool for understanding how and why computer networks function as they do.

Features:
*Written by an instructor who has used OPNET simulation tools in his classroom for numerous demonstrations and real-world scenarios.
