Current and future trends in open source network simulators for wireless systems

Lorenzo Carlà, Francesco Chiti, Romano Fantacci and Tommaso Pecorella,    University of Florence, Florence, Italy

The impressive standardization activities within the wireless arena require a high degree of interoperability, thus leading to open standards. Even though the benefits are evident for this, the overall system is usually more complex, with tightly coupled protocol interactions. For this reasons, the protocol suite optimization is still an open issue. In particular, it is essential to carefully investigate the overall resulting performance before industrial development and real-world deployment. Since a real testbed is often extremely costly, ...
