Design and Implementation of a QoS-included WiMAX
Module for NS-2 Simulator



This work is related to my PhD studies under the supervision of Loutfi Nuaymi. It is supported by the Britanny (Bretagne) Region in the framework of Op WiMAX Project.

Installation

To install the patch under ns2-29, follow the instructions below:
  1. Download the software ns-allinone-2.29 package.
  2. Download the latest QoS-included WiMAX patch into ~/ns-allinone-2.29/.
  3. Install the QoS-included WiMAX module using the patch file: patch -p0 <patch-QoS-WiMAX-%date%-%version% from the ns-allinone-2.29 directory.
  4. Compile using make clean then make.
  5. Run TCL examples: QoS_example1.tcl, QoS_example2.tcl.

Download patch

  • patch-QoS-WiMAX-v2.1, 13 April 2009*.
  • patch-QoS-WiMAX-v2.0, 27 October 2008.
    • Additional schedulers for the Best Effort QoS class.

You can also manually install the QoS-include WiMAX module under ns2-XX following the next steps:
  1. Download the source code.
  2. Extract the compressed file as "tar -zxvf QoS-WiMAX-sourcecode-%date%.tar.gz".
  3. Move the directory ns-2.29/wimax inside your ns-2.XX directory.
  4. Change the following files: Makefile.in, autoconf.h, common/packet.h, mac/mac-stats.h, and tcl/{autoconf.tcl, ns-lib.tcl, ns-packet.tcl, ns-wimax.tcl}.
  5. ./configure; make and have fun!
