Planning for 21st Century Broadband

Download video

In order to plan for 21st century’s broadband communication networks with the increasing number of users who are using such a communication, together with the fast enhancements to the software specifications of applications transmitted over broadband communication networks, an easily changeable, scalable and hierarchical OMNet model was developed. Iraqi national optical network was modeled at a national level, which could be drilled down to the regional level, namely: North Iraq; Middle Iraq and South Iraq. A third layer has been developed at the city level, where the optical communication network within each city or governerate, as it is called in Iraq, was modeled in detail. OMNet++ was used to create a flow model representing the teletraffic within the Iraqi national optical network.
