WiFi Simulations with ns-3

Presenter: Tom Henderson (University of Washington – USA), Hao Yin (University of Washington – USA)
Date: October 19, 2022
Time: 15:30-18:30 (Colombian Time)
Duration: 3 hours
Chair: Eric Gamess

This tutorial is designed as an introduction to WiFi simulations with ns-3, a discrete-event network simulator popular for Internet research. By the end of the session, participants should have a basic understanding of the scope of the WiFi module in ns-3, and how to conduct initial example simulations that use the WiFi models.

ns-3, Discrete-event Network Simulation, WiFi.

Covered Topics:

  • ns-3 overview and architecture
  • ns-3 main features and models
  • Basics of WiFi at PHY and MAC
  • Evolution across releases
  • Worked example programs and visualizations: (1) DCF and EDCA channel access, (2) Ad Hoc and Mesh networks, and (3) WiFi 6 features

Prerequisites for Participants:
Background in ns-3 is preferred but not necessary. Some understanding of discrete-event network simulation, WiFi technology, and C++ will be advantageous. Linux or MacOS machines or virtual machines are needed to run ns-3.
