If you're a professor looking to set-up / enhance your university's communication-network lab, and unable to manage with legacy software / open source simulators, this is just for you.
|NetSim powered lab||Possible current lab set-up|
|1.||Easy to use GUI for network
Results dashboard with graphs and tables
Packet animation to visually understand protocol working.
|Open source simulators use a command line interface and scripting languages. Very difficult for unskilled users to use and understand|
|2.||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||No experiments in the latest technologies|
|3.||Painless change as equivalent lab experiments are available in NetSim||Using legacy software like OPNET and unable to get upgrades / support|
|4.||Well designed and up to date Experiment & User manuals||Unclear documentation i.e written for developers and not students, and lacks screen shots, examples etc|
|5.||Straightforward install and licensing||Complex installation process prone to errors|
|6.||Dedicated support - live online support during installation. Helpdesk based support post installation. Training sessions via team viewer. Monthly webinars||Open source support - dependent on an informal network of people to respond to your queries on the forum.|
