This is done with the command set ns [new Simulator]. CBR stands for ‘constant bit rate’. So please download the daily snapshot unless a release is made for version ns2. Two nodes, one link Tutoeial this section we are going to define a very simple topology with two nodes that are connected maec a link. Make sure the connection-pattern and node-movement files exist under the directories as declared above.

Just as with any other ns simulation, we begin by creating a tcl script for the wireless simulation.

Marc Greis’ Tutorial for the UCB/LBNL/VINT Network Simulator “ns”

For details and available optional values of these variables, see chapter 15 mobile networking in ns of ns documentation. We see TCP flow starting at How to start Now we are going to write a ‘template’ that you can use for all of the first Tcl scripts. In addition to the variables LL, MAC, antenna etc that were declared at the beginning of the script, we now define some more parameters vreis the connection-pattern and node-movement file, x and y values for the topology boundary, a seed value for the random-number generator, time for the simulation to stop, for convinience.


So the next step is to create an agent object that sends data from node n0, and another agent object that receives the data on node n1. We are going to simulate a very simple 2-node wireless scenario.

II. Finding Documentation

You can download it here. This tutorial chapter uses new node APIs which are not available in the ns2. See Chapter 15 of ns documentation for details on wireless trace. This API is used to change direction and speed of movement of the mobilenodes. In the first subsection, we discuss how to create and run a simple 2-node wireless network simulation.

IV. The first Tcl script

Save the file wireless1. Then they move towards each other in the first half of the simulation and again move away for the second half.

The new APIs are not available with ns2. If not, I suggest you either go to the tutoiral page for the VINT project or the web page for ns version 2.


If you want to download a copy of simple-wireless. If calcdest rejects a movement pattern file you have created, the easiest way to format it properly is often to load it into ad-hockey and tutorizl save it out again.

In this section, you are going to develop a Tcl script for tutirial which simulates a simple topology. However, in order to keep this example simple we avoid using movement pattern files and thus do not provide God with next hop information.

If ad-hockey can read your input correctly, its output will be properly formatted for calcdest. At the end of the simulation run, trace-output file simple. The next hop information is normally loaded into god object from movement pattern files, before tutoria begins, since calculating this on the fly during simulation runs can be quite time consuming. The purpose of these pages is to make it easier for new ns users to use ns and nam, to create their own simulation scenarios for these tools and to eventually add new functionality to ns.


There are better sources for that which I am going to list in Section II. Tutoiral we create the object God, as follows: You can write your Tcl scripts in any text tutoriaal like joe or emacs. However the node movements for this example shall be read from a node-movement file called scentest. You can download the complete example here if it doesn’t work for you and you think you might have made tutoriwl mistake. Tutorixl they move towards each other in the first half of the simulation and again move away for the second half.

You will have to use the code from this section as starting point in the other sections. The topography is broken up into grids and the default value of tutotial resolution is 1. Next we create the 2 mobilenodes as follows: We begin our script simple-wireless.
