Andrey Kolesnikov proposes an interesting unified approach and corresponding tools for modelling and effective generation of realistic workloads and traffic in networks. As a result of the general applicability in IP-based networks, the outcome of his research can be used for different service interfaces in combination with various workload models and modelling techniques. His work is both broad and deep in focus in order to demonstrate the application of the proposed approach in different realistic scenarios.
