A federated approach to distributed network simulation
George F. Riley, Mostafa H. Ammar, Richard M. Fujimoto, Alfred Park, Kalyan Perumalla, Donghua Xu
Pages: 116-148
DOI: 10.1145/985793.985795
We describe an approach and our experiences in applying federated simulation techniques to create large-scale parallel simulations of computer networks. Using the federated approach, the topology and the protocol stack of the simulated network is...

MAYA: Integrating hybrid network modeling to the physical world
Junlan Zhou, Zhengrong Ji, Mineo Takai, Rajive Bagrodia
Pages: 149-169
DOI: 10.1145/985793.985796
The flourish of large-scale network applications across the Internet and or MANET has raised a challenge to network modeling environments that support experimentation and analysis of close interactions between real applications and network dynamics....

Staged simulation: A general technique for improving simulation scale and performance
Kevin Walsh, Emin Gün Sirer
Pages: 170-195
DOI: 10.1145/985793.985797
This article describes staged simulation, a technique for improving the run time performance and scale of discrete event simulators. Typical network simulations are limited in speed and scale due to redundant computations encountered both...

Network simulation enhancing network management in real-time
Gary Warren, Ronald Nolte, Ken Funk, Brian Merrell
Pages: 196-210
DOI: 10.1145/985793.985798
This research investigates the application of network simulation to enhance network management in real-time. Its focus is on ad hoc wireless networks as needed for future public safety emergency response, homeland security, and future combat system...
