The main objective of this paper is to design network model as similar as possible to the Ananya hotels network using OPNET to optimize the network delay in its services. The entire application is connected via 56 K lines. The employees and customers both are experiencing a high delay while accessing personal hotel reservation application. In such situations, simulation and modeling is a rapid and low-priced way of studying multiple scenarios and identifying the best possible configuration. OPNET IT Guru Simulator (academic edition) 9.1 was used to simulate the entire network. Thus, the effects of varying some network parameters such as various links and delay were observed in the delay performance metric. Several simulations in OPNET models have been performed in order to adapt the model to the real equipments and configurations. Several simulation graphs were obtained and used to analyze the network performance. We compared the results obtained via simulation with a live application scenario in the laboratory and adjusted the simulation configuration accordingly.
