Wireless network Coding in ns2 - NS2 Tutorial # 5

This post shows you how to write TCL code for Wireless simulations in ns2. It also explains the various aspects of wireless network.

It is part of a lecture series in network simulator 2.

The following image is shown for explanation

#Example of Wireless networks
#Step 1 initialize variables
#Step 2 - Create a Simulator object
#step 3 - Create Tracing and animation file
#step 4 - topography
#step 5 - GOD - General Operations Director
#step 6 - Create nodes
#Step 7 - Create Channel (Communication PATH)
#step 8 - Position of the nodes (Wireless nodes needs a location)
#step 9 - Any mobility codes (if the nodes are moving)
#step 10 - TCP, UDP Traffic
#run the simulation

  1. Thank you for sharing. I cannot find node 2 and node 3 in NAM. They are not visible in video tutorial also

  2. Sir,
    nam is not working for this code.
    i am getting the error that your trace filr is empty so cant connect nam.

    plz help

  3. how can we set the data rate for each node in wireless sensor networks?

  4. Enter followings into terminal.
    nam wireless.nam

  5. sir,
    can you provide me source code for adhoc tcp variants like tcp feedback ,tcp bus and calculating their average throughput and simulation in ns2 or ns3. My email id is in advance.

  6. # random motion
    for {set j 0} {$j < $val(n)} {incr j} {
    for {set i 0} {$i < $val(n)} {incr i} {
    set xx_ [expr rand()*$val(x)]
    set yy_ [expr rand()*$val(y)]
    set rng_time [expr rand()*$val(end)]
    $ns at $rng_time "$node_(1) setdest $xx_ $yy_ 10.0";

    I have written this code for random motion but there is an error :can't read "node_(1)": no such variable
    while executing
    "$ns at $rng_time "$node_(1) setdest $xx_ $yy_ 10.0""
    ("for" body line 6)
    invoked from within
