Planning Tools[edit]


NetSim is a popular tool for wireless network design and planning. The steps would be

Modeling and Simulation: Model the network scenario, and set up the protocol / device parameters. Then run the simulation Visualizing the simulation using the packet animator: This would show the flow of packets, movement of nodes etc Analyzing the results: Study the output statistics and then iterate if required
