Abstract

Researchers have used the simulation technique to develop new networks and test, modify, and optimize existing ones. The scientific community has developed a wide range of network simulators to fulfil these objectives and facilitate this creative process. However, selecting a suitable simulator appropriate for a given purpose requires a comprehensive study of network simulators. The current literature on network simulators has limitations. Limited simulators have been included in the studies with functional and performance criteria appropriate for comparison not been considered, and a reasonable selection model for selecting the suitable simulator has not been presented. To overcome these limitations, we studied twenty-three existing network simulators with classifications, additional comparison parameters, system limitations, and comparisons using several criteria.
