NSDL: An Integration Framework for the Network Modeling and Simulation

Eduardo M. D. Marques and Paulo N. M. Sampaio

Abstract—Describing network scenarios using intermediate languages or models has been a complex task, since these languages should be able to promote the interoperability among the different network tools applied for the modeling and simulation of those scenarios. However, the reutilization of network descriptions and other network related data among tools is not straightforward. Therefore, the use of a standard data structure, or language, to describe data networks would promote the interoperability among network tools, providing the users with the possibility of applying new platforms and tools to validate their network scenarios. This paper presents a framework for the integration of different modeling and simulation tools based on the language Network Scenario Description Language (NSDL).
