Extending INET Framework for Directional and Asymmetrical Wireless Communications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper reports the work on extending the OMNeT++ INET Framework with a directional radio model, putting a special emphasis on the implementation of asymmetrical communications. The authors first analyze the original INET radio model, focusing on its design and components. Then they discuss the modifications that have been done to support directional communications. The preliminary results show that the new model is flexible enough to allow the user to provide any antenna pattern shape, with only an additional reasonable computational cost.
