The ns-3 network simulation tool is a newly developed simulator designed for use in academic and commercial research in computer networks. The development effort is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and is in the fourth year of an eight-year development effort. In this talk, we will review the basic design concepts for ns-3, dicuss the implementation of the basic simulation engine, and go over a number of the detailed network models included in the tool. Seminar attendees will be able to construct simple ns-3 simulations and collect statistics about the simulated network.
About the Speaker: George Riley received his Ph.D. from the Georgia Tech College of Computing in August 2001 and joined the faculty of ECE at that time. Dr. Riley received an MSCS from Florida Tech in 1996 and a BSEE from the University of Alabama in 1972. Prior to enrolling at Tech in 1996, Dr. Riley was president and CEO of Infoware, Inc. of Cocoa Beach, Florida. From 1987 to 1996, Infoware provided software and system design services to the United States Air Force at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida. During that time, Infoware designed, implemented, and deployed numerous systems to support the missile launch activities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, including a communications front-end processor for real-time data gathering and a real-time distributed flight safety display system. Concurrently, from 1984 to 2000, Dr. Riley was also vice-president and co-owner of CAM Systems Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia. CAM systems developed, under Dr. Riley's direction, a suite of PC-based software tools for residential property management.
