|INET-HNRL: Optical, Wireless and Hybrid Networking Extensions for INET|
|Friday, 17 December 2010 15:24|
From Kyeong Soo Kim: This is to announce the INET-HNRL, a new fork of INET Framework developed for hybrid networking research. INET-HNRL provides new models in both the optical and the wireless networking areas and their hybrid. Currently, the following models and research frameworks have been implemented:
The project homepage is at http://kyeongsoo.github.com/inet-hnrl, where you can find a brief overview of each model/framework together with all the relevant publications. The github project URL is https://github.com/kyeongsoo/inet-hnrl.
The details of each models are also provided in NED documents (for this, you need to generate NED documents in the OMNeT++ IDE).
Of the linked publications, the most relevant one for this project is the following one:
As mentioned in the above paper, you can find that the INET-HNRL provides simulation models not only for new networking protocols but also new application-level traffic sources and sinks (including new streaming video traffic generation based on real trace files).
As for the actual use of the simulation models and frameworks, please check the two example directories (i.e., "ecr" and "ecr2") under "examples/ngoa". Not only usual "ini" and "ned" files, you can also find script files for post-processing (mostly based on R, some on Python/SciPy, Perl, & Bash).
Now that I just finished teaching for this term, I will work on the home page to update it and add more information soon. Also, I'm currently looking into the merge of Andreas Bodozoglou's EPON model to provide integrated PON models to the OMNeT++ community as we briefly discussed before.
Final remark: It would be greatly appreciated if you could cite the relevant papers linked in the project home page if you use the models and framework in the INET-HNRL.
