Researchers are using simulation tools since several years which are very important tools for all experimental fields such as computer science, mechanical engineering, electronics and electrical engineering even for medical science. Simulation has been used during the system design phase which provides a feasible, economic, easy to use and portable platform for the system design. The portable or hands-on prototype or model of any system is called simulation. This paper reconfigures as well as explores the model, which is most common not feasible in real or quite costly or unreasonable, to make it more perfect system. Working model of the system can be studied, and thereafter, characteristics related to either the real system’s responses or actual system’s subsystem can be derived in form of a simulator. For example, after focusing at the validity and performance of the network the outcome can be analyzed prior to implement and simulated as the real scenario. Along with this, networking technologies related to simulation reduce the cost and time of using the natural system.
