Multi-Hop Simulator for Ad-Hoc IEEE 802.11e

In this paper, the authors address the development of a cross-layer wireless network simulator for IEEE 802.11e in a multi-hop environment. Based on a previous simulator created by their research team for physical plus MAC layers, it involved the upgrade of a previous version of that simulator to model the trans-mission of packets from the source to the destination using intermediate nodes. From the results obtained for an initial routing algorithm, one can conclude that the system is capable of deliver the packets regardless of the source/destination, and successfully calculate several metrics such as end-to-end delay and number of packets lost.
