Course Code: KKKT6274 Course Name: Modeling and Simulation of Communication and Computer Network Course Status: Elective Synopsis: This course is an introduction to discrete-event/time simulation for performance modeling of communication and computer systems. At the end of this course, a student will be able to model a system and predict its performance. Various simulation tools and software package will be introduce to model communication and computer network and system such as MATLAB/Simulink, Network Simulation NS-2, OMNET++, QualNet, OpSym and Optisys, and Sonnet. The simulator also will help student to design and optimize any systems and networks before their deployment.
