QualNeT Thesis is a state-of-the-art simulator for large, heterogeneous networks and the distributed applications that execute on those networks. QualNet simulator features provide a unique capability for accurate, efficient simulation of large-scale, heterogeneous networks. QualNet simulator executes on all commonly used platforms including Windows NT/2000/XP Professional, Solaris, Linux, and most UNIX variants.
QualNeT Thesis enables users to: Design new protocol models. Optimize new and existing models. Design large wired and wireless networks using pre-configured or user-designed models. Analyze the performance of networks and perform what-if analysis to optimize them. QualNet simulator can model thousands of nodes by taking advantage of the latest hardware and parallel computing techniques.
QualNeT Thesis can run on cluster, multi-core, and multi-processor systems to model large networks with high fidelity. QualNet simulator uses highly detailed standards-based implementation of protocol models. It also includes advanced models for the wireless environment to enable more accurate modeling of real-world networks.
QualNeT Thesis has the following advantages: Rapid prototyping of protocols. Comparative performance evaluation of alternative protocols at each layer is present. Built in measurements on each layer is also present. Modular layered stack design. Standard API for composition of protocols across different layers is available.
QualNeT Thesis supports for wider area of networks and analysis. QualNet simulator uses an architecture that is similar to one used in physical networks with well defined API’s between neighboring layers. QualNet is commercial software that runs on all common platforms (Linux, Windows, Solaris, and OS X) and is specialized in simulating all kind of wireless applications. It has a quite clear user interface compared to other solutions while also offering an easy to use command line interface.
QualNet simulator can connect to other hardware and software applications, such as OTB, real networks, and third party visualization software, to greatly enhancing the value of the network model. QualNet enables users to:
QualNet can support real-time speed to enable software-in-the-loop, network emulation, and human-in-the-loop modeling. QualNet uses highly detailed standards-based implementation of protocol models. QualNet can model thousands of nodes by taking advantage of the latest hardware and parallel computing techniques. QualNet can run on cluster, multi-core, and multi-processor systems to model large networks with high fidelity.
