OMNeT++ is an extensible, modular, component-based C++ simulation library and framework, primarily for building network simulators.
PTP++: Precision Time Protocol for INET
A Precision Time Protocol (PTP) module for OMNeT++ INET 2.6 has been announced by Martin Levesque. The model allows one to measure the PTP accuracy under different configurations and traffic loads, using any INET components (routers, etc.). PTP is implemented as a UDP application as in the standard. [Download]
The New SimuLTE Website is Up and Running
A new website for SimuLTE has been announced by Antonio Virdis. It is available at simulte.com or inet.omnetpp.org/simulte. The website includes tutorials for basic and advanced users (single cell, multicell, X2 scenarios).
SimuLTE is an OMNeT++/INET based simulator for LTE and LTE Advanced networks. It models the data plane of LTE and focuses on performance evaluation and testing of resource-scheduling solutions. SimuLTE has its roots as a project of the Computer Networking Group of the University of Pisa, Italy. It is free and open-source, thus you are more than welcome to contribute to the project, both from a coding and research perspective. If you have any research work that is related to SimuLTE, and you would like it to be published/linked within the website, please contact the authors.
INET-2.6.0 Stable Release Available
We are happy to announce the latest stable version of the INET Framework. This version requires OMNeT++ 4.6 or OMNeT++ 5.0b1.
added OLIA for CMT-SCTP (by Martin Becke)
added a trace player feature to NetPerfMeter
fixed compile errors when using OMNeT++ 5.0b1
fixed an issue with too small initial value of ‘ssthreshold’ in TCP
We are happy to announce the first preview release of OMNeT++ 5.0. The main
highlights of this release are extended logging facilities, and the new Canvas API
that allows your model to draw freely on the surface of a module.
This beta should be sufficiently stable for daily use, but does not yet contain
all changes we have planned for the 5.0 release. More betas can be expected
in the next months, adding the missing pieces. Download it here.
New Veins Extensions: Plexe (for platooning) and Veins LTE
From Christoph Sommer: Two new extensions for Veins have been presented at this year's VNC conference:
Plexe, by Michele Segata, is an extension of Veins which permits the realistic simulation of platooning (i.e., automated car-following) systems. It features realistic vehicle dynamics and several cruise control models, permitting the analysis of control systems, large-scale and mixed scenario, as well as networking protocols and cooperative maneuvers.
Veins LTE, by Florian Hagenauer, integrates Veins and two additional module libraries: SimuLTE provides the means of simulating cellular networks using LTE; the INET Framework provides general IP connectivity support and models of links using IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi. This integration allows Veins to serve as a unified Open Source framework for the simulation of heterogeneous vehicular networks using, for example, IEEE 802.11p DSRC, Wi-Fi, and LTE.
