It is not used across the organization, but only in the research department of engineering. It addresses major business problems like evaluating the performance of a designed or proposed network with the help of a simulation, and transmitting real-time traffic. The results are presented in an excellent way with the help of graphs. Once we are satisfied with the network performance, we can implement it in real time instead of deploying a network without estimating its performance.,Using Riverbed Modeler, the Adhoc networks are designed very effectively, and all routing protocols are available. We can also enhance routing performance by varying certain parameters, like hello packets. VANET's are implemented with real scenarios and the real import of traffic. Zigbee networks are designed and evaluated using Modeler, and new devices are added from the cloud. The 3DNV view provides a real 3D scenarios view and working simulation, but it needs a separate license.,Riverbed Modeler needs to improve the scenarios of LAN MAN WAN, as the available scenarios under all of these follow a simple area structure that's not connected to the ISP when it comes to simulation. This generates dummy traffic. Riverbed Modeler also needs to work on the selection of result sets so that, as with most designed networks, we can select any result parameter to show. All the parameters are displayed, whether they are relevant or not. It needs to display only relevant result parameters to select. The back-end TCP/IP model needs more clarity to expose the structure to some changes.,9,It comes with a costly paid license, but simulating the network before actual deployment saves a lot of costs, in case after deployment we feel performance is not good and we need to change. This would waste a lot of money, but Riverbed saves this money. Its OPNET GURU academic edition is available free of cost, but with limited functionality, which is good for students in maximum case. This will degrade our sale of Riverbed Modeler. A one-time investment in Modeler saves a lot of cost regarding networks, topology, designing, and provides a lifetime license with updates.,,MATLAB, Visual Studio IDE, NetBeansA Great tool!Opnet is the cutting edge tool in the case of network modeling. The tool is a fantastic way to see if the organization's requirements are met for an efficient and robust network.

  • The back-end TCP/IP model needs more clarity to expose the structure to some changes.
Riverbed Modeler is well suited for wireless, wired, ZigBee, and Cisco networks. All these scenarios are efficiently designed and simulated using Riverbed Modeler, as all the devices are available in its object pallet, so we just need to drag and drop for the best scenario design in the given dimensions. The simulation results are around 95% accurate. However, it is not suited for data security, as data encryption algorithms are not available in Riverbed Modeler.

Opnet is the cutting edge tool in the case of network modeling.

The tool is a fantastic way to see if the organization's requirements are met for an efficient and robust network.

OPNET allows organizations to choose routing protocols for network and also model the size of the network using the many different network equipment icons.
  • Allows the USE of C++ In Routing protocol of individual switch nodes
  • Easy to use, Easy to setup a working network model, allows to even have computers and all sorts of peripherals like IP Printers etc
  • You can stress test your network simulation, absolutely fantastic tool, bridges Monte Carlo with visual representations of the network in question
  • Great Customer Support
  • Good training articles available online, used as a staple in university setting.
  • More help features and supporting help information.
  • More lecture style slides with step by step guides to get users going.
Metropolitan network modeling is possible, small-large or even huge scale organization network modeling is possible.

Less appropriate for home user network modeling, OPNET should only be used to model large scale solutions. Great industry tool.
