srsLTE-emane is a derivative project of srsLTE. In conjunction with the EMANE LTE Model, srsLTE-emane enables emulating an LTE network in EMANE on a laptop, desktop or other dedicated computer resources. Software Defined Radio (SDR) hardware is not required.
The srsLTE applications,
srsmbms, are adapted to send RF traffic through
the EMANE emulation environment. The EMANE version of the applications are renamed
srsue-emane contain an embedded EMANE instance
to replace lower levels of the LTE radio stack required to emulate the over the air communication effects. The new applications are also instrumented for data extraction using
OpenStatistic. Internal statistics can be queried manually
ostatistic application, or collected automatically using
OpenTestPoint and the
OpenTestPoint LTE Probe.
srsLTE-emane is released under the AGPLv3 license. The current stable version is 18.12.2, the second release based on srsLTE 18.12.
Install the latest pre-built EMANE bundle. EMANE version 1.2.3 or later is required.
Build and install the EMANE LTE Model.

EMANE LTE Model contains a demonstration for running a small network with two UEs and one ENB.
Each of the emane version srsLTE applications take an input configuration file, identical to the one used by the regular srsLTE applications, with the following additional parameters.
[runtime] daemonize = 1 # 0 - foreground, 1 - run as daemon [mhal] #statistic_service_endpoint=0.0.0.0:47100 #emane_configfile=emanelte.xml
runtime configuration section contains a
that controls whether the application runs in the foreground or as a daemon.
mhal section contains a
parameter to set the OpenStatistic query address and port (all
applications), and the
emane_configfile parameter takes the
name of the the configuration file fed to the embedded EMANE instance
srsue-emane only). Default values shown.
