NetSim Standard

NetSim Standard version provides almost all the features of NetSim pro and is given at discounted educational prices to universities for Network R & D.

NetSim Standard version accelerates network R&D and reduces your time-to-publish. It comes with source C code and allows users to

  • Design new protocols and technologies, as well as evaluate changes to existing ones
  • Test and demonstrate designs in realistic scenarios
  • Optimize protocol and application performance
  • Study the effect of real devices and transmit live traffic using NetSim Emulator. Emulator combines the real and virtual worlds to create scenarios that cannot be achieved in a lab environment.
NetSim Academic version is a low cost version for educational customers intending to use NetSim for lab experimentation and teaching purpose. The version comparison table shows the features available in the different versions.

If you’re a researcher who has spent countless hours trying to figure out open source simulators for network R & D and
still haven’t been able to make progress, here are 8 reasons why you should explore NetSim Standard

#Open Source SimulatorsNetSim Standard Version
1.Write hundreds of lines of script code to create network scenariosEasy to use GUI allows users to simply drag and drop devices, links and applications
2.Analyse and write code to extract performance results from multi megabyte files Results dashboard provides appealing simulation performance reports with tables & graphs
3.Write programs on external tools for graphsInbuilt graphing with extensive formatting (axes, colours, zoom, titles etc)
4.Limited technologiesWide range of technologies including the latest in IOT, WSN, MANET, Cognitive Radio, 802.11 n / ac, TCP – BIC / CUBIC, Rate adaptation with packet and event tracing
5.Read through thousands of lines of C++ codes to figure out what to modify to do your researchR & D projects available with source C code and documentation to easily develop / improve on
6.Code tens of printf statements to debug your codeOnline debug capability and ability to ‘watch’ all variables.
Run animation in parallel for immediate visual feedback
7.Spend many days researching how to link to external softwareExternal interfaces to external software like MATLAB®, SUMO and Wireshark
8.Unsure of the quality of the build / patch you have used and if the results are even valid at the end Researchers trust NetSim for simulating MANET radios, emulating huge distribution networks or simply presenting a report to management. A team of NetSim engineers continuously verify NetSim results through hundreds of tests every day.
