Abstract: In this paper we discuss modeling and simulation of a multigigabit/s LAN. We use parallel simulation techniques to reduce the simulation time. Optimistic and conservative parallel simulators have been used. Our results on a shared memory multiprocessor indicate that the conservative method is superior to the optimistic one for the specific application. Further, the parallel simulator based on the conservative scheme shows a linear speedup for large networks.
