On link modeling, network emulation and its impacts on applications

In this blog post, I’ll guide you through the most important characteristics that define a 'link' in packet-switched networks, how they can impact your application, give some examples of real world parameters and how to use NetEm to emulate them. In every packet-switched network, you will notice characteristics that are intrinsic to them and that varies depends on the communication channels being used. Such characteristics are bandwidth, delay (including jitter), packet loss, packet corruption and reordering. Bandwidth probably is the...
