Hey,

The best tool to use with simulate different network topologies is mininet, you can build up topologies such tree and mesh by default or add a custom topology.

Mininet also allow you to sent the bandwidth and the latency on the link between the virtual switches. Watch out that OpenDaylight will only see the reported interface from the vswitch and not the bandwidth set for the virtual link between the interfaces. Intro into mininet and then you can dig deeper and get into setting up RED for packet drops with the Python API
