The ns-3 network simulator

ns-3 is a discrete-event network simulator for Internet systems, targeted primarily for research and educational use. ns-3 is free software, licensed under the GNU GPLv2 license, and is publicly available for research, development, and use.
ns-3 is intended as an eventual replacement for the popular ns-2 simulator. The domain name acronym “nsnam” derives historically from the concatenation of ns (network simulator) and nam (network animator).

ns-3 is written in C++ and Python and is available as source code releases for Linux and Unix variants, OS X, and Windows via Cygwin.

ns-3 makes quarterly releases. ns-3.10 is scheduled for release in late 2010 or early 2011. The summary ns-3 roadmap lists some future release plans.

Building a great network simulator for research and education requires many contributions from the networking community.

I'm going to program a network through this ns-3 program to simulate and prove my theoretical study.
