Multi-Channel-Multi-MAC Model Architecture for Multi-Net-Multi-Link Tactical Data Link in NS-2
Because of the coexistence of multiplex Tactical Data Links (TDLs) it is urgent to study the cooperation of Multi-Net-Multi-Link (MNML) TDL. This paper proposes a Multi-Channel-Multi-MAC (MCMM) model architecture to support MNML TDL simulation. The MCMM model adds several copies of data link layer, network interface and channel which are capable to cover the configurations of multi-channel and multi-MAC. The modification of Network Simulator 2 (NS-2) is presented to achieve the MCMM model. And the validations of the MCMM model is shown by the simulation of MNML TDL, taking the data exchange of Link-11 and Link-16 as an example.
