Abstract

This paper presents a development of an Emulation Network Analyzer for heterogeneous services in campus environment. We 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, we demonstrate our Emulation Network Analyzer (ENA) development is differ from others system such as OPNET application and hardware network analyzer (e.g. Fluke Optiview). This study focuses on the characteristics and functionality of three different products (ENA, OPNET and hardware network analyzer) and the study conclude that each product has their strength and functionality. With unique knowledge of this application available and a solid background in modeling and simulation, it is possible to utilize some of the campus problems dramatically shorten the time span involved in providing useful network architectural solutions, cost reduction and optimization of network resources during preparation, proposal and planning phases. Finally, ENA tool is a good simulation analyzer that can be used in small to medium size networks for campus environment purposes with minimum cost.
