NetSim Example Experiments – Learn networking concepts

NetSim is a general-purpose network simulation tool used by 400+ customers world-wide; the focus is on ‘networking technologies and protocols’ and it is brand neutral. NetSim comes with a set of example experiments, to aid in the learning of networking concepts through simulation. Students can work remotely by accessing their University license server through VPN. These examples also have well-structured documentation covering Objective, Theory, Network Set-up, Results and Inference.
