MiXiM 2.0 Released, Contains Support for INET Integration
The MiXiM team has released MiXiM 2.0. The main highlight of this release is MiXiM - INET Framework integration. MiXiM 2.0 contains a "Mixnet" example simulation that demonstrates how one can use MiXiM network interface cards (NICs) together with higher layer protocols (IP, TCP, UDP) of the INET Framework. MiXiM provides the necessary modules to make the two frameworks compatible, as well as documentation and examples how to build simulations using both frameworks. The new release also fixes some bugs and contains small interface changes. An overview of the most important changes is given after the break.
MiXiM is an OMNeT++ modeling framework created for mobile and fixed wireless networks (wireless sensor networks, body area networks, ad hoc networks, vehicular networks, etc.). It offers detailed models of radio wave propagation, interference estimation, radio transceiver power consumption and wireless MAC protocols.

In order to use MiXiM together with INET, an INET version without the
wireless-related classes is needed, which can be downloaded from
