OMNeT++ (Objective Modular Network Testbed in C++) is an object-oriented modular discrete event simulator. The simulator can be used for modelling:

  • communication protocols
  • computer networks (traffic modelling etc.)
  • multi-processors and distributed systems
  • ... any other system where the discrete event approach is suitable
OMNeT++ provides much more than just the simulation library with statistical classes. It has execution environments that support interactive simulation including visualization of collected data. There's a gnuplot-based GUI tool for analysing and plotting simulation results. OMNeT++ also helps in specifying parameter values, managing multiple runs, selecting seed values etc, and supports parallel execution (PVM3-based).
