MACOM

MACOM - A Tool for Evaluating Communication Systems. MACOM (Modelling and Analysis of Communication Systems) is a software tool for model based performance evaluation of (parts of) communication systems. Models are specified by graphical interactive means, model solution is performed by using either simulation or numerical techniques for Markovian models. Compared to purely analytic approaches, this approach allows for a considerably enhanced model world. Numerical analysis of stationary behavior is possible for models of sizes up to hundreds of thousands of states, depending on the available hardware. Concepts covered by the model world of MACOM are finite or restricted resources, adaptive strategies, simultaneous resource occupation, peaky traffic and bulk arrivals. The general modelling concepts allow ...
