Abstract:

The goal of this project, as outlined in our original proposal, was to enhance the state of the art of network protocol design through the creation of a network simulator and related tools, and to validate this software by using it in our ongoing research. As described below, we have met these objectives. This VINT Project has made several releases of the ns simulator, the nam network animator and other related tools e.g., topology generators. In addition, this simulator has been used in our ongoing research program, resulting in several technical papers on a range of topics. More importantly, the simulator has been widely adapted by a broad community of networking researchers and has been used in a wide range of research reflected in scores of technical papers.
