A Primer for Real-Time Simulation of Large-Scale Networks
—Real-time network simulation refers to simulating computer networks in real time so that the virtual network can interact with real implementations of network protocols, network services, and distributed applications. In this paper, we compare real-time network simulation against other major networking research tools, including analytical models, physical testbeds, simulation, and emulation. We present techniques that enable simulation to model large-scale networks and interact with many real applications under the real-time constraint. We also discuss ongoing research efforts that will allow real-time network simulation to assume important roles at supporting future networking research.
