OPNET Network Simulator

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.
