Symphony: Simulation, Emulation, and Virtualization Framework for Accurate WSN Experimentation

Date Added: May 2013
Format: PDF

The authors have developed a simulation framework for testing and validation of WSN applications which closely resembles processes happening inside real equipment including hardware and software induced delays. The core of the framework consists of a virtualized operating system and an emulated hardware platform integrated with a general purpose network simulator ns- 3. Besides an ability of experimenting with the real code base as in the real deployments their framework allows testing the boundary effects of different hardware components on the performance of distributed applications and protocols.
