Network Simulation is the most sought after research field, and it has now become an integral part of many research projects like commercial applications and academic research. The networking and communications domain ranges from finding friends on social networking sites to medical diagnosis to smart cities implementation and even satellite processing. In this book, we have made an honest effort to make the concepts of network simulation easy-all the basics programs are explained in an easy and simple manner in the NS2 simulator, right from the installation part. As the real-time application of networking and communications is endless, the basic concepts and algorithms are discussed using the NS2 simulator so that everyone-from graduate students to researchers-can benefit from this book.

What will you learn
Readers will get to know a conspicuous difference of how NS2 is being utilized as a product device in research and business applications. Today, applying network simulations does not require a PhD. Nonetheless, there are a couple of assets out there that completely cover all the essential parts of actualizing networking and communications, without expecting you to take the advanced math courses. We believe that this book will help any individual who needs to apply network simulation, without studying years of analytics, calculus math, and probability hypothesis.

Who this book is for
The book is basically meant for all those graduate and research students who find the algorithms and protocols of networking and communications difficult to implement. In this book, all basic protocols of networking and simulation are discussed in detail with a practical approach. Primarily, beginners can find this book more effective as the chapters are sub-divided in such a way that they will find building and implementing algorithms in NS2 interesting and easy.
