Workshop on Network Simulator 2 (NS2)

Network Simulator 2 (ns2) is an open-source event-driven simulator designed specifically for research in computer communication networks. This is the most widely used simulator used by engineers and researchers in academia and industry for simulation of wired and wireless networks. Network Simulator 2 (ns2) Training course is laboratory oriented, in which hands on training will be given. The course covers fundamentals of system modeling, understanding of ns-2, installation of ns-2, writing scripts, simulation and patching. Main focus is on students become capable enough to write their own simulation model test them and draw conclusions
