Welcome to the new, redesigned OMNeT++ community site. The old, Geeklog-based website infrastructure has served us in the last 6 years, but its age has started to show, and had to be replaced. The new website is based on Joomla, and we hope it will solve all our previous problems. A few things you should now:
We have removed all the unused services. Calendars, polls, Web links are gone.
The forum was also dropped, as it was mostly a write-only medium, and the new mailing list will double as a forum too.
The content of the site is mostly the same (we converted almost all content), but we have reorganized the site navigation a bit.
A bibtex-based Publication Database was added for keeping track of OMNeT++ related papers. We made a good effort to collect publications from several online libraries and collections, but we don't know about the coverage. Please help us getting up-to-date by checking that it contains all your publications! You can submit the missing ones via a web form.
A Model Catalog was added to gather all OMNeT++ models in a single place.
User accounts were not taken over from the old site. Please re-register on the new site if you wish.
We moved the mailing list to Google Groups. This allows you to follow the discussion via XML feeds, write to the group from the web directly, browse and search the archive in threaded mode. We have moved the old member list, however if you have recently subscribed to the omnetpp list, you may have to re-subscribe. The mailing list's address has changed, but the old list address still forwards to the new e-mail address. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
As a registered user, you will be able to submit news items, new models and publications.
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.
