Networking (ns2)

Network Simulator version 2 (NS-2) is a free and open source discrete event network simulator developed at UC Berkeley. It is simply an event driven simulation tool that has proved useful in studying the dynamic nature of communication networks. It covers a large part of applications, protocols, network types, network elements and traffic models. Undoubtedly, NS2 has become the most widely used open source network simulator, and one of the most widely used network simulators. This Workshop aims to provide an insight into simulation of wired, wireless and Sensor Networks using NS-2.
