This paper presents an extension for network simulator-2 (ns-2) that enables the simulation of adaptive antennas in realistic channel conditions using MATLAB. A hybrid discrete-event discrete-time approach is adopted to exploit the scalability properties of ns-2 for the network simulation, and the modeling capabilities of MATLAB for the physical layer implementation. The developed package takes into account the physical antenna system and the signal processing algorithm to model in detail the… CONTINUE READING
