Two-Day Workshop on
Network Simulation and Patch Development
November 16 –17, 2012
Center of Research in Networks & Telecom (CoReNeT)
M. A. Jinnah University, Islamabad
By Mr. Ehsan Elahi, Mr. Asim Rasheed, Ms. Sadaf Yasmin, Ms. Sana Ajmal

A network simulator is a software program that imitates the working of a computer network. In simulators, the computer network is typically modeled with devices, traffic etc and the performance is analyzed. Typically, users can then customize the simulator to fulfill their specific analysis needs. Simulators typically come with support for the most popular protocols in use today, such as WLAN, Wi-Max, UDP, and TCP. Examples of notable network simulation software are NS2, NS3, OPNET, ESTINet, OMNET etc.
In this workshop, the aim is to familiarize the participants with the state of the art simulation tools. The workshop will start from the basics of network simulators and major components of NS2, NS3 and ESTINET. Then the introduction to writing, building and running a simple point-to-point network script will be given. After that the tutorial moves toward some more complex topologies including wired and wireless networks. Tracing, debugging and result analysis is also part of the tutorial. After that, the new patch/protocol development in all mentioned tools will be studied.


Objectives:
• To understand the network simulators and its benefits to the research students
• To understanding the patch writing in simulators
• Selection of network simulator for specific scenarios


Who should attend:
This workshop is intended for people with the background in data communications, telecom networks, IP networking, C/C++ Programming, who are:
•Researchers and students (computer communications and networks) who are working on network simulation to analyze two or more network protocols/architectures etc.
•MS/PhD students who have designed their own protocols and wanted to analyze its performance using simulation.
•Researchers and students who are seeking an in-depth understanding of network simulation and patch development.
