Network Simulation Experiments Manual

Network Simulation Experiments Manual, Third Edition, contains simulation-based experiments to help students and professionals learn about key concepts in computer networking. The 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 included is information on configuring and analyzing the performance of the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) model and the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol; simulating the basic features of an interdomain routing protocol called Border Gateway Protocol (BGP); and simulating mobility in wireless local area networks. In addition, the book covers congestion control algorithms implemented by the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP); the effects of various queuing disciplines on packet delivery and delay for different services; the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP); and the role of firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs) in providing security to shared public networks.
