ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

Network simulation

Network simulation is like pretending you are sending mail over the internet. You can pretend to send emails, files, or messages to other people in different places and check to see what happens. You can check to see if the messages arrive or if something happens that would stop them from getting where they need to go. Network simulation lets you test what would happen before you actually send the stuff.
