Original Abstract

The OPNET Modeler is a simulation environment enables modeling of large-scale networks with in detail defined parameters. This paper is focused on the possibility to communicate with external systems and applications that this environment offers. Due to this we are able to interconnect simulation environment with real network system and gain the simulation results more accurate and in accordance with the reality. We created communication model composed from network scenario created in the OPNET Modeler, C/C++ external application and Cisco router. For this purpose we implemented the SNMP protocol into the OPNET Modeler. This model enables data exchange between external network component and work station in OPNET Modeler scenario. This model is very useful especially in the situation when you need to include a real network device into simulation process, because the pure simulation environment is not quite sufficient.
