For fast, easy modeling, this practical guide provides all the essential information you need to know. A wide range of topics is covered, including custom protocols, programming in C++, External Model Access (EMA) modeling and co-simulation with external systems, giving you the guidance not provided in the OPNET documentation. A set of high-level wrapper APIs is also included to simplify programming custom OPNET models, whether you are a newcomer to OPNET or an experienced user needing to model efficiently. From the basic to the advanced, you will find topics are easy to follow with theory kept to a minimum, many practical tips and answers to frequently asked questions spread throughout the book and numerous step-by-step case studies and real-world network scenarios included.
