Simulation Software - Network Protocol Simulation

Network Protocol Simulation

The interaction between the different network entities is defined by various communication protocols. Network Protocol Simulation software simulates behavior of networks on a protocol level. Network Protocol Simulation software can be used to develop test scenarios, understand the network behavior against certain protocol messages, compliance of new protocol stack implementation and response to modification of protocols. These simulators are based on telecommunications protocol architecture specifications developed by international standards body such as the ITU-T, IEEE, and so on. The output of protocol simulation software can be detail events log files, protocol decode, and ladder diagrams. Many of such simulation software also support network traffic simulation to emulate a real network environment to test network performance on load and stress parameters.

Famous quotes containing the words simulation and/or network:

    Life, as the most ancient of all metaphors insists, is a journey; and the travel book, in its deceptive simulation of the journey’s fits and starts, rehearses life’s own fragmentation. More even than the novel, it embraces the contingency of things.
    Jonathan Raban (b. 1942)

    Parents need all the help they can get. The strongest as well as the most fragile family requires a vital network of social supports.
    Bernice Weissbourd (20th century)
