Graduate students are involved in research of networking technologies at the Department of Physics & Computer Science. Masters students make use of OPNET products to aid in their research topic by simulating complex network scenarios and devices, conducting network performance measurement, and performing comparative analysis on networking protocols and technologies. See Using OPNET in Carrier Ethernet Design and Simulation.
