This is a simple simulator for sketching mesh network routing strategies in the hopes to find better approaches to mesh routing. Please note that this simulator does not virtualize a TCP/IP stack nor all characteristics of wireless connections. The dynamic nature of MANETs is also not (yet) covered by this simulator.
This a command line editor and simulator, but the output can be viewed with this graph viewer.
OMNeT++: OMNeT++ is an extensible, modular, component-based C++ simulation library and framework, primarily for building network simulators.
ns-3: ns-3 is a discrete-event network simulator for Internet systems, targeted primarily for research and educational use.
MeshViewer: A visualization tool for mesh networks. Primarily used by Freifunk communities. Some code was used by this project.
