Network Simulation: Tasks and Methods of Their Solution

Nina A. Podolskaya
Abstract—Simulation of networks is an actual task for different areas of informational technologies. It may be used for network control algorithms evaluation, for software validation, for network performance estimation etc. Task of network simulation is usually reduced to the task of network protocols implementation. Peculiarity of network simulation is that network protocols are already implemented in operating system so these protocols not only can be implemented in simulation software but also their implementation in operating system may be re-used. The latest way implies network devices inclusion into simulation process. These network devices may be real or virtual. All these opportunities and their combinations provide a variety of possible methods for network simulation task resolution. The choice of the method is to be defined by different parameters: desired simulation accuracy, desired speed of simulation, the resources available etc. This paper describes different network simulation tasks arisen in semiconductor industry and the methods chosen by the authors for these tasks resolution.

Index Terms—Network simulation, network control algorithm, network protocol stack, WiFi, TUN/TAP.
