MANET Extensions to Ns2

Date Added: Jan 2012
Format: PDF

This is a set of software modules providing additional models for the simulation of multi-hop Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) in the ns2 simulator. The authors provide implementations of the CM and Shell mobility models, and the AF and LOS radio propagation models described in. They also provide instrumentation tools for the ns2 simulator, as well as template simulation scripts and results parsers. The software presented here builds on the Monarch ns2 wireless extensions, as well as on some pre-existing mobility and radio propagation models, such as Random WayPoint, Free Space and Two-Ray Ground. They assume that the reader is familiar with the concept of MANETs, with the models afore-mentioned, and with the internals of ns2.
