There are many simulation framework packages for OMNeT++ that are freely available online. Whether you want to simulate peer-to-peer networks or simulate GPS navigation, there are simulation framework packages for almost everything you would want to do. You can also build on top of existing frameworks and create functionalities that don't exist. The following are some simulation framework packages that I think are worth mentioning:

  • INET: This is used throughout this book and allows simulations to include protocols such as the following:
    • IP
    • IPv6
    • TCP

  • HTTP Tools: This allows you to simulate web browsers and web servers and uses StandardHost from INET.
  • EBitSim: This allows you to create BitTorrent simulations. EBitSim makes use ...
