Modeling and Simulation of Communication Networks: 16.617
 
Electrical and Computer Engineering
 
 
Description: This course presents classical and modern methods for analyzing performance of communications nodes and networks. Particular focus is on the representation of data, voice and video traffic using probability distributions and random processes. These models will be applied in the analysis of queueing systems that model the functions of various network elements. Performance analysis will be carried out using analytical, computation and simulation based methods. Classical M/M/1, M/G/1, G/M/1 and fluid buffer queues will be analyzed. Approaches for multiplexing and admission control of traffic sources will be presented.
