About the course: A network simulator is software that predicts the behavior of a computer network. Since communication networks have become too complex for traditional analytical methods to provide an accurate understanding of system behavior, network simulators are used. In simulators, the computer network is typically modeled with devices, links, applications etc. and the performance is analyzed. A network simulator must enable a user to model the network topology specifying the nodes on the network, the links and traffic between those nodes providing network performance metrics as output.
The goal of this course is to provide knowledge on basic fundamentals of network simulators NS3 and Omnet++, generation of different network scenarios in these network simulators, understanding and implementation of existing as well as new modules and protocols of different networks like Wireless Sensor Network, Vehicular Ad-hoc Network, Internet of Things using frameworks like Veins, Castalia etc. in NS3 and Omnet++. Also, the course will cover the simulation environment of these simulators and performance analysis of these protocols.

Course Contents

Introduction of  NS3  : Installation and overview of the network simulator, GUI of NS3 , commonly used APIs in NS3 and demonstration of existing examples in NS3.

Simulation environment: Basic models in NS3, communication technologies like WiFi, LTE etc. , implementation of  different  protocols eg. routing protocols, data dissemination protocol etc. in different types of network (MANET, Sensor, VANET etc), setting of parameters like channels, transmission range, delay model etc. in simulator , integration with other frameworks, tools and libraries and handling of  various attributes in NS3.

Analysis:  Performance evaluation of the protocol on the different parameters like collision, delay, packet loss, no of packets generated etc.

Introduction of Omnet++: Installation, understanding of the simulator and demonstration of existing examples.

Simulation environment : Understanding and integration with other frameworks like Veins, Castalia, INET etc. , implementation of different protocols in different networks using different frameworks, setting of simulation parameters  and integration of hardware specific code.
