OMNeT++ is an extensible, modular, component-based C++ simulation library and framework, primarily for building network simulators.
Castalia 2.0 released
Castalia 2.0 (for OMNeT++ 3.x) has been released. Castalia is a
simulator for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Body Area Networks (BAN),
and generally networks of low-power embedded devices. It offers an
advanced channel model based on empirical measurements that supports
mobility and temporal variability. It also offers many features that
are often neglected in network-level simulation, such as realistic
radio modeling and access, node clock drift, and physical process
modeling. Castalia is an expandable, modular and user-friendly
simulator with a growing research community. For more info go to http://castalia.npc.nicta.com.au.
This framework is made available so that MF2 users can benefit from Omnet++ 4 new features, and to provide access to additional modules (detailed multiple access interference model, IEEE 802.15.4 CSMA, radio power consumption model for TI CC 1100 and TI CC 2420). In the future, the additional modules provided in this framework might be ported to the MiXiM simulation framework (http://mixim.sourceforge.net).
New INET Framework web site
We have set up a dedicated web site for the INET Framework at http://inet.omnetpp.org. The design and content are very basic at the moment -- we'll appreciate your help in refining and expanding it.
OMNeT++ 4.0 released
After more than 3 years of intense work of the team, 8 beta releases and two release candidates, OMNeT++ 4.0 has been finally released. (We'd like to take the opportunity to congratulate ourselves for this great achievement! :) With the new Eclipse-based IDE, greatly enhanced NED language and simulation kernel, and tons of other improvements, 4.0 is guaranteed to redefine the way you do simulations with OMNeT++, and it will open up new horizons.
The 2nd International Workshop on OMNeT++ took place last week in Rome, Italy. It was a great success: 18 papers and posters were presented (selected from nearly twice as many submissions!), and we again filled the room for the most part of the day, with about 40 people being present. With the INET@github discussion and the hands-on tutorial on the upcoming MiXiM model framework, the program ended after 7pm, and then we went out for an informal dinner in a nice nearby restaurant.
You'll find the programme on the workshop site, together with the slides of the presentations: http://www.omnet-workshop.org/2009/techprog.shtml.
