Virtual Distributed Simulation Platform for the Study and Optimization of Future Beyond 3G Heterogeneous Systems
Source: Universidad Miguel Hernandez
This paper proposes and assesses a new distributed simulation platform for heterogeneous wireless communications. The objective of the ICARUS platform is to investigate cross-layer and cross-system algorithms for heterogeneous beyond 3G systems through a virtual distributed testbed that will allow the research community to share their individual simulation platforms and improve their research capacity through a cooperative simulation effort. This paper discusses the advantages of the ICARUS platform, and demonstrates its capacity to assess heterogeneous beyond 3G systems and reduce the simulation time.
