A Critique of the Telecommunications Description Language (TeD)
Brian J. Premore, David M. Nicol, Xiaowen Liu
Dartmouth PCS-TR96-299

Abstract: TeD is an object-oriented description language designed to facilitate the modeling of large scale telecommunication networks, with simulation on parallel and distributed platforms. TeD models are mapped to the Georgia Tech Time Warp engine (GTW) for execution. In this paper we outline the features of TeD, pointing out its strengths and identifying characteristics that gave us trouble as we used TeD to model detailed networks. Our issues are motivated specifically by a model of TCP and a model of multicast resource allocation. Our intention is to illustrate by example what TeD can do, and characteristics that a potential TeD user should be aware of.
