OPNET (Optimized Network Engineering Tools) is a network simulator software program, and according to Wikipedia “is used to predict the behavior of networks and applications under different situations. Researchers use network simulators to see how their protocols would behave if deployed. Companies use simulators to design their networks to get a feel for how they will perform under current or projected real-world conditions”. OPNET was developed by Alain Cohen while he was still a student at MIT and he formed a company in 1986 now known as OPNET Technologies; now a global leader in network management. Their customer list includes corporations, government and defense agencies and network service providers among others. Currently listed on the NASDAQ as OPNT and trading around $13.50, the company is headquartered in Bethesda, MD and has over 430 full-time employees. Alain’s brother Mark serves as CEO while Alain acts as CIO and is directly involved in all aspects of the company’s design and development of products. Both receive an annual salary of $250,000 with options.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
