Open NetSim and Select Examples > VANETs > Simple Scenario then click on the tile in the middle panel to load the example as shown in below screenshot
Figure 4‑1: List of scenarios for the example of Simple Scenario
This scenario involves a simple road traffic network scenario as shown below:
Figure 4‑2: Network topology in Sumo
An equivalent network is created in NetSim by importing the SUMO configuration file. In NetSim the TCP/IP stack parameters of the devices are configured along with network traffic between vehicles.

After running the simulation, NetSim Animation can be used to visualize packet flow and vehicle mobility along with packet information. Time varying throughput plot can be opened from the Results window.
