A Novel Approach of Simulation Tools for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks

Simulation is used to measure the behavior and performance of protocols for wired/wireless networks, it is economical because it can carry out experiments without the actual hardware and provides a good compromise between complexity and accuracy. Simulation can be done by using the network simulators implemented in software which are valuable tools for researchers to develop, test and diagnose network protocols. Simulation is used to verify and evaluate the performance of networks. There are many different network simulators available; it is extremely difficult to choose an appropriate tool for performance testing without the complete analysis of existing tools.
