Overall Satisfaction with Riverbed OPNET Network 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.
  • No negative impact, Opnet always exceeds performance.
The only thing comparable to OPNET is Packet Tracer, which is basic and very limited. Packet Tracer in terms of tool comparison between the two is like OPNET's stone-age relative.
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.
