Abstract:

A generalized queueing model simulation of store-and-forward computer communication networks is developed and implemented using Simulation Language for Alternative Modeling SLAM. The model includes an ACKNAK data link protocol, four-level message precedence, finite queues and a response traffic scenario. Network performance, indicated by average message delay and message throughput is estimated using the simulation model. Keywords include Network simulation Network performance Computer simulation Communication networks Computer-communication networks SLAM SLAM simulation Queueing models Queueing model simulation Simulation model and Message delay model.
