Abstract : This research effort examines related interface studies, interactive techniques and visualization functions to present the design, development and implementation of a new network visualization framework design. From the interface design perspective, this research presents a prototype design to ease the implementation process. The prototype design is introduced to attempt to better facilitate using multiple network visualization functions meeting user needs. With the usage of the mediator tool, the new network visualization framework design interacts with NS-2. The visualization functions such as clustering, labeling, color coding and selecting nodes help accessing network objects and events, supporting four tabs consisting of buttons, menus, and sliders. Interactivity and visualization functions empower the framework to handle the inherent complexity of large networks, allowing the user to interact with the current display of the framework and control the network through the visualization.
