This year's project will be about simulating a queuing network and evaluating its performance. Queuing networks are an essential component of our communication and a model close to reality is an important, yet challenging subject.
An important aspect will be the construction of particular modules of which the network will be composed. We plan to implement arrival (memoryless, self-similar) traffic and scheduling properties (FIFO, priority queue) in order to mimic different kinds of networks.
Official module entry: [89-4245] INF-42-45-L-6
Previous programming knowledge is required (we will use C++). You should also be interested in queuing networks ;-)
It will be a group project. We will decide on the group sizes based on the number of participants.
