We will address thetypes of network simulator with its features, process, characteristics, benefit and limitation.Introduction:-The development stage of OPNET was started in 1986 by ML3 Inc., then it was under thename of OPNET technologies ltd and currently it is with Riverbed said inOPNET IS NOWPART OF RIVERBED STEELCENTRAL™ (2018).It is one of the powerful modellingsoftware which can be used for simulation of networks. The initial concept to develop thistool is to support military person but now it has become of the commercial simulation tool.But it can be used by student for educational purpose without any cost; however it isexpensive for the commercial use. It has high level user interface and its interface build fromC and C++ programming languages. Its modelling process is divided in three main domainswhich are, network domain, node domain and process domain.Network simulator typesThere are mainly two types of network simulator1.Open source network simulator3
In open source network simulator it provides free source code for users and affiliatedpackages.2.Commercial network simulatorIn case of commercial network simulator it is not possible to get source code for affiliatedpackages without any cost.There are mainly two types of simulation method, which are analytical simulation anddiscrete simulation. OPNET works on discrete simulation method. Simulation tool is used toremove the limitation of scalability where users can make network by adding and removingtools, and can analyze the behaviour, but in case of real time system it needs to be installedand checked which do not have any option of analyzing the behaviour withoutimplementation. Although there is no limit in the number of devices used for simulationpurpose. One of the limitation of using simulation tools is that it do not have credibilitywhich means it cannot guarantee about the flawless behaviour of the system in real world.Network simulator:-Network simulator is a device which allows users to check their software or program beforeits launch. It can be used for research purpose so that user can compare the expectedbehaviour of the software program or application. In computer network, simulators help tocompare the position of routers, modems, wireless devices and many more. It allows users tochange their systematic diagram and their position until they get the expected result. Thebenefit by using network simulators is that sometime it helps users to save cost ofimplementation if it I failed due to any reason.4
