Simulation and Evaluation of Computer Networks
Dr. Mathias Fischer; Shankar Karuppayah, M.Sc.
The course teaches performance evaluation in computer networks. The seminar is split into an introductory theoretical and a subsequent practical part. In the theoretical part, the core concepts of discrete event simulation are taught including the basics on the performance evaluation of protocols. This includes also the teaching of basic statistics for the proper analysis of simulation results. The practical part of the seminar comprises the simulative modeling of real network protocols and their performance evaluation. For that, concrete implementation tasks will guide participants to add missing functionality to a given simulation model.
At the end of the semester an oral exam will take place. For attending it, the successful completion of all practical lab experiments is mandatory.
