33.1.2 Inserting a Loss Module

When studying a protocol (, SRM error recovery mechanism), it might be useful to study protocol behavior over lossy links. However, since a session level simulation scales by abstracting out the internal topology, we need additional mechanisms to insert a loss module appropriately. This subsection describes how one can create these loss modules to model error scenarios.
