Therefore, all the DES simulators adopt a special timing mechanism called Simulation Time. Unlike our traditional concept about time, the […]

Although the OverSim is preferred by the professor, I still don’t have too much sense about a network simulator itself X-@. I spend 3 hours on the documents of OMNeT++ […]
