In recent years, network simulation has become a very difficult task due to the proliferation and integration of wireless technologies. In this paper, the authors discuss the new challenges that have arisen regarding the simulation of the wireless channel and the PHY, MAC and Routing layers, argumenting why currently available network simulation tools such as ns2 and many of its recently proposed extensions do not address all these issues in a comprehensive and systematic fashion. They then present a novel framework designed to address these challenges. This framework has been developed as an extension of NS-Miracle, in order to have support in the definition and management of scenarios involving the use of multiple interfaces and radio technologies, and is made up of two components.
