The Network Simulator - ns

Ns-2 is a discrete event simulator targeted at networking research. Ns-2 provides substantial support for simulation of TCP, routing, and multicast protocols over wired and wireless (local and satellite) networks. For more information see the Ns Users FAQ.

Ns-2 is written in C++ and an Object oriented version of Tcl called OTcl.
