LoRaWAN ns-3 module
To run simulations using this module, you will need to install ns-3, and clone
this repository inside the
git clone https://github.com/nsnam/ns-3-dev-git ns-3 git clone https://github.com/signetlabdei/lorawan ns-3/src/lorawan
If you are interested in having the latest features (and more bug-prone code), you can check out the develop branch:
cd ns-3/src/lorawan git checkout develop
If you are interested in only compiling the
lorawan module and its
dependencies, copy the
.ns3rc file from
is your ns-3 installation folder, and only enable the desired module by making
sure the file contains the following line:
modules_enabled = ['lorawan']
To compile, move to the
ns-3-dev folder, configure and then build ns-3:
./waf configure --enable-tests --enable-examples ./waf build
Finally, make sure tests run smoothly with:
./test.py -s lorawan
If the script returns that the lorawan test suite passed, you are good to go. Otherwise, if tests fail or crash, consider filing an issue.
The module includes the following examples:
Examples can be run via the
./waf --run example-name command.
