NS-MIRACLE: Multi-InteRfAce Cross-Layer Extension library for the Network Simulator



Overview

NS-MIRACLE is a set of libraries designed to enhance the functionalities provided by the Network Simulator ns2. It provides an efficient and embedded engine for handling cross-layer messages and, at the same time, enables the co-existance of multiple modules within each layer of the protocol stack. For instance, multiple IP, link layers, MACs or physical layers can be specified and used within the same node. The NS-MIRACLE framework facilitates the implementation and the simulation of modern communication systems in ns2; moreover, due to its modularity, the code will be portable, re-usable and extensible.

Installation

For step-by-step installation instructions, you can refer to the nsmiracle-dei80211mr tutorial.

Documentation

A detailed documentation of ns-miracle is available. Please note that this documentation was written for a preliminary release of ns-miracle, and is therefore somehow outdated.

You can find the documentation here.

In this release, in addition to MIRACLE library, it is included a set of libraries to simulate wireless system networks, in detail:

  • Traffic generators
  • TCP Agents
  • IP modules
  • IEEE802.11 (both the one from standard ns distribution and Multirate [2])
  • MPhy, a general physical layer module in which interference of
  • in-flight packets is evaluated using a Gaussian Model, and an enhanced
  • propagation model is provided (fading with Jakes Simulator, shadowing
  • with Gudmonson model and path loss with Hata model)
  • UMTS:
    • Link layer is derived from eurane extension [3]
    • Physical layer is develpoed exteding Mphy
    • Link and Wireless Channel
    • physical mobility models (standard and Gauss Markov mobility model)

I have a question. Is it possible to implement directional antenna in ns2? I read some papers and the authors managed to achieve this. But I could not locate the source code in ns2. Some said QualNet is a better tool for this purpose. Have you implemented directional antenna before? Kindly email me at thwoon2002@gmail.com

Thanks a lot

hai..


i installed ns miracle on ns-2.33 as explaind in http://all-time-ns-2.blogspot.com/2009/03/installing-ns-miracle-to-ns-233.html and ran the example "ns link_with_errors_cbr.tcl" which worked then i tried to do samples examples shown in http://telecom.dei.unipd.it/ns/miracle/doxygen/basic_samples.html. when i compile this code, the ns miracle gets corrupted. i cannot run the above example which worked earlier. i had to reinstall the whole ns again... is there any solution for this.. please help..

regards
Emil
