Emulation Network Analyzer Development for Campus Environment and Comparison Between OPNET Application and Hardware Network Analyzer
This paper presents a development of an Emulation Network Analyzer for heterogeneous services in campus environment. The authors propose a framework and implementation named ENA that models the network behavior of heterogeneous environment. The purpose of this paper is to inform potential tool of analyzing the network in campus environment by providing an overview of the capabilities of ENA tool. For this purpose, they demonstrate their Emulation Network Analyzer (ENA) development is differ from others system, such as OPNET application and hardware network analyzer (e.g. Fluke Optiview). This paper focuses on the characteristics and functionality of three different products (ENA, OPNET and hardware network analyzer) and the paper concludes that each product has their strength and functionality.
