Traffic Engineering: Simulation Model and Real Network Environment Over Single and Multiple Links
The authors present a novel approach for the measurement and estimation of single and multiple links in heterogeneous network environment. They propose an enhanced equation to evaluate the performance of network link via little law and queuing theories (M/M/1 and M/M/m) to improve the evaluation algorithm. To get accuracy results on the performance of traffic engineering simulation model, they verify and validate data from real network environment. They use network management tool to capture those data and network analyzer device to generate traffic into single and multiple links. As a result, this traffic engineering simulation model can provide a good approximation of the real traffic observed in the real network environment.
