Simulation Technologies in Networking and Communications : Selecting the Best Tool for the Test Hardback
Simulation is a widely used mechanism for validating the theoretical models of networking and communication systems.
Although the claims made based on simulations are considered to be reliable, how reliable they really are is best determined with real-world implementation trials. Simulation Technologies in Networking and Communications: Selecting the Best Tool for the Test addresses the spectrum of issues regarding the different mechanisms related to simulation technologies in networking and communications fields.
Focusing on the practice of simulation testing instead of the theory, it presents the work of more than 50 experts from around the world. Considers superefficient Monte Carlo simulationsDescribes how to simulate and evaluate multicast routing algorithmsCovers simulation tools for cloud computing and broadband passive optical networksReports on recent developments in simulation tools for WSNsExamines modeling and simulation of vehicular networksThe book compiles expert perspectives about the simulation of various networking and communications technologies.
These experts review and evaluate popular simulation modeling tools and recommend the best tools for your specific tests.
They also explain how to determine when theoretical modeling would be preferred over simulation. This book does not provide a verdict on the best suitable tool for simulation.
Instead, it supplies authoritative analyses of the different kinds of networks and systems.
Presenting best practices and insights from global experts, the book provides you with an understanding of what to simulate, where to simulate, whether to simulate or not, when to simulate, and how to simulate for a wide range of issues.
