Real-Time Simulation of Multi-Hop Ad-hoc Networks

6th CaberNet Radicals Workshop, 2002.


An ad hoc network comprises a collection of mobile hosts such as laptops with wireless radio interfaces dynamically to a temporary network. Due to the limited transmission range of these interfaces, multiple network hops may be needed for two hosts to communicate with each other. Numerous new and innovative developments particularly in the telecommunication and (mobile) network sector call for new or extended network simulators. In this work we want to emphasize the range of use and elaborate on the development of a tool for simulating network delay and loss characteristics in real-time for multi-hop ad hoc networks.
