Regardless of the size, form, or implementation of a network, a fundamental goal of any network design is to meet the key performance metrics. In this course, Ryan Hu shows you the principles of network design, topologies, and performance evaluation, and how to test your design with network simulations. Ryan shows you how to create and evaluate simulated networks with ns-3 scripts, leveraging network technologies like Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and 5G, and provides hands-on exercises and challenges so you can apply the basic principles of network performance evaluation in your custom simulations.
