An integrated satellite and terrestrial communications network simulation and modeling capability is established at Houghton Associates, Inc. This includes network throughput, latency, and availability. Trade studies can be conducted across a broad range of network and equipment parameters. Simulations are developed to examine:
Additional load and infrastructure requirements associated with alternative message content
TCP/IP and UDP protocol alternatives
Latency performance across a complex network
TCP/IP windowing algorithm impact
Alternative routing and impact of link cuts
Houghton Associates, Inc.’s experience in modeling, simulation, and operations research includes receiver simulation development, time-dependent data flows, and windowing algorithms for incorporation into network models.
