Simulation is used to verify the functionality of the circuit.. a)Functional Simulation:study of ckt's operation independent of timing parameters and gate delays. b) Timing Simulation :study including estimated delays, verify setup,hold and other timing requirements of devices like flip flops are met.

Synthesis:One of the foremost in back end steps where by synthesizing is nothing but converting VHDL or VERILOG description to a set of primitives(equations as in CPLD) or components(as in FPGA'S)to fit into the target technology.Basically the synthesis tools convert the design description into equations or components

Simulation <= verify your design.
synthesis <= Check for your timing

Networking is a vast term. In simple terms, I can say it is the process of linking. In case of computers, Networking has two meanings.One is internet where you get connected to the vast cyber world. The second is Social networking where you get...
Though they both solve the basic purpose but the problem is someone is able to do at low price and someone at a higher price. And commercial requires considerable skills to make it effective.
I think it is less investment and greater return.
