Simulator for Resource Allocation in Hybrid Wireless Networks

ID: LITH-IDA-EX--05/025--SE

Much work has been done in simulating traditional cellular networks. But with the incoming of ad-hoc network technology, the next generation networks will employ hybrid network architectures using both cellular and ad-hoc networking concepts. We investigate how to create a simulator being able to simulate a hybrid wireless network. This involves setting up a cellular network and an ad-hoc network respectively. However, the most important thing is how to integrate them seamlessly. Fortunately, there has already been a simulator called SIMRA which simulates a UMTS cellular network. Therefore, this thesis work is greatly simplified as how to extend and improve SIMRA to implement a simulator for hybrid wireless network. We selected J-sim as the developing platform for our simulator and our development was greatly based on the wireless package provided by the latest version of J-sim. To evaluate the new simulator, different resource allocation algorithms were run against it and the results were compared to those generated by earlier extensions to SIMRA under the same simulation settings. It showed that the resource allocation algorithms behaved similarly under the hybrid wireless network environment. Nevertheless, there is still some work left to do to improve the simulator.
