|#||Possible current lab set-up||With NetSim Academic Version|
|1.||Open source simulators use a command line interface and scripting languages. Very difficult for unskilled users to use and understand||Easy to use GUI for network design.
Results dashboard with graphs and tables
Packet animation to visually understand protocol working.
|2.||No experiments in the latest technologies||NetSim academic versions supports a Wide Range of Technologies including the latest in 802.11, 802.15.4, LTE, IOT, MANETs, 802.22, Enhanced TCP etc|
