This chapter describes SimuLTE, a framework within the OMNeT++ ecosystem for simulating Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. The main focus of SimuLTE lies on developing and testing of communication protocols and resource-allocation algorithms, with an emphasis on the impact at the system level. The chapter starts with a detailed description of the SimuLTE architecture, of its main nodes and corresponding protocol layers, and of the main functions. Then two tutorials on the modeling and performance evaluation of two LTE-related research problems are presented, namely, one concerning interference coordination and one on direct-communication management. Each tutorial provides guidelines for network definition, for configuring the scenario, and their parameters. The tutorials also describe how to modify the code of the available functions. Exemplary result analysis is presented along with each tutorial, to demonstrate the evaluation capabilities of the framework.

Abstract

This chapter describes SimuLTE, a framework within the OMNeT++ ecosystem for simulating Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. The main focus of SimuLTE lies on developing and testing of communication protocols and resource-allocation algorithms, with an emphasis on the impact at the system level. The chapter starts with a detailed description of the SimuLTE architecture, of its main nodes and corresponding protocol layers, and of the main functions. Then two tutorials on the modeling and performance evaluation of two LTE-related research problems are presented, namely, one concerning interference coordination and one on direct-communication management. Each tutorial provides guidelines for network definition, for configuring the scenario, and their parameters. The tutorials also describe how to modify the code of the available functions. Exemplary result analysis is presented along with each tutorial, to demonstrate the evaluation capabilities of the framework.
