Network Design and Simulation Software

It’s unfortunate for their owners and operators, but many of today’s LANs have grown without overall planning. When it is unclear how a network is configured, network discovery software provides a way for a network administrator to map the hardware and software on his or her network. If, however, you have the luxury of being able to plan an entire network before it is implemented–as you might if your company was moving to a new location–then you can take advantage of some powerful software to help you do so. Such network design and simulation software can also let you test the network under different traffic loads and under a variety of failure conditions.
