Abstract / Description

ns2 Simulator has been widely used to simulate various scenarios related to wired and wireless medium. However, transfer of real time user data has not been implemented as researchers are more concerned with the output of the system in terms of range of values of particular parameter desired or else. This framework besides running the default simulation as done by ns2 adds the capability to allow transfer of user data and allows user to save at the other end or destination the data received. The user data may be multimedia data or any data (plain text), document file, binary file or raw data. Simulations result show that actual user data received may be same or different, due packet error or noise, respectively depending upon the network topologies used. The user data transfer has been implemented in UDP (CBR traffic).
