This book chapter discusses two of the agent-based modeling (ABM) levels, i.e. exploratory agent-based modeling (EABM) and validated agent-based modeling (VABM). In first part of this chapter, we shall briefly explain EABM with the help of a case study of 5G networks modeled in an agent-based simulator called NetLogo [1] of the use cases of 5G networks is Internet ofThings (IoT). We designed, implemented and experimented this case study to explore the futuristic approaches to ease the implementation of this under-developing 5G network which still needs to be explored. Next, we discuss another important level of modeling, i.e., VABM. Since ABM approach has turned into an attractive and efficient way for displaying large-scale complex systems, verification and validation (V&V) of these models have become questionable. Here, we shall briefly explain VABM with the help of the same case study of 5G networks modeled as in EABM. Using VABM, we shall validate the case study if it is a credible solution.
