OMNeT++-Based Cross-Layer Simulator for Content Transmission over Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
Flexbility and deployment simplicity are among the numerous advantages of wireless links when compared to standard wired communications. However, challenges do remain high for wireless communications, in particular due to the wireless medium inherent unreliability, and to the desired flexibility, which entails complex protocol procedures. In that context simulation is an important tool to understand and design the protocols that manage the wireless networks. This paper introduces a new simulation framework based on the OMNeT++ simulator [1] whose goal is to enable the study of data and multimedia content transmission over hybrid wired/wireless ad hoc networks, as well as the design of innovative radio access schemes. To achieve this goal, the complete protocol stack from the application to the physical layer is simulated, and the real bits and bytes of the messages transferred on the radio channel are exchanged. To ensure that this framework is reusable and extensible in future studies...
