STEP 1: Small Internet Works

The following tutorials will lead you through creating a network simulation. You will first be creating the existing office network. Next, you will run the simulation of the current office network to get a baseline to compare the effects of the expansion. Then, you will create a second scenario that includes the expansion. You will run this simulation and compare the results of the expansion on the network with the current office network.
