An Introduction to Network Modeling and Simulation for the Practicing Engineer

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Oct 11, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 216 pages
This book provides the practicing engineer with a concise listing of commercial and open-source modeling and simulation tools currently available including examples of implementing those tools for solving specific Modeling and Simulation examples. Instead of focusing on the underlying theory of Modeling and Simulation and fundamental building blocks for custom simulations, this book compares platforms used in practice, and gives rules enabling the practicing engineer to utilize available Modeling and Simulation tools. This book will contain insights regarding common pitfalls in network Modeling and Simulation and practical methods for working engineers.

About the author (2011)

Jack L. Burbank leads the Wireless Networking section within the Communications and Network Technologies group of The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL). Mr. Burbank is an expert in the areas of wireless networking and modeling and simulation, focusing on the application and evaluation of wireless networking technologies to the military context. His team of network engineers at JHU/APL participates within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the IEEE 802 standards organization. Mr. Burbank is a professor of networking and telecommunications in The Johns Hopkins University Part-Time Engineering Program, and is a member of the IEEE and ASEE.

William T. Kasch received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the Florida Institute of Technology in 2000 and an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University in 2003. His interests include various aspects of wireless networking, including MANET, IEEE 802 technology, and cellular. He participates actively in both the IEEE 802 standards organization and the Internet Engineering Task Force.

Jon R. Ward works in the wireless networking section of the communications and networking technology (VCT) group atT he Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) in Laurel, MD. He has worked projects focusing on network design and interference testing of standards-based wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15.4, and IEEE 802.16.
