OPNET Modeler accelerates the R&D process for analyzing and designing communication networks, devices, protocols, and applications. The modeler incorporates a broad suite of protocols and technologies, and includes a development environment to enable modeling of all network types and technologies. Users can analyze simulated networks to compare the impact of different technology designs on end-to-end behavior.
OPNET consists of high level user interface, which is constructed from C and C++ source code blocks with a huge library of OPNET specific functions. Hierarchical structure, modeling is divided to three main domains:
• Network domain
• Networks + sub-networks, network topologies, geographical coordinates, mobility
• Node domain • Single network nodes (e.g., routers, workstations, mobile devices…)
• Process domain • Single modules and source code inside network nodes (e.g., data traffic source model)
• With OPNET it is also possible to run external code components (External System Domain, ESD)
OPNET Network simulator is a tool to simulate the behavior and performance of any type of network. The main difference Opnet Network Simulator comparing to other simulators lies in its power and versatility. IT Guru provides pre-built models of protocols and devices. It allows you to create and simulation different network topologies. The set of protocols/devices is fixed – you cannot create new protocols nor modify the behavior of existing ones.
DP Project Development provide live project based training. Students can select from a wide variety of live projects for ME/M.Tech and PH.D research to show during interviews and final semester/year presentations. Each student is helped to design and simulation any project on OPNET, make him/her research complete.
