OMNET INET FRAMEWORK is an open-source communication networks simulation package, written for the OMNEST/OMNeT++  project simulation system. In framework contains models for several Internet protocols: beyond TCP and IP.Some Omnet-INET framework protocol used in projects are UDP, Ethernet, PPP and MPLS with LDP and RSVP-TE signaling.

what is the need for Oment-INET-framework?

Omnet INET framework is especially useful when designing and validating new protocols, or exploring new or exotic scenario.

Layers present in INET-framework:

  • Transport protocols.
  • Mobility, this means motion patterns of mobile objects.
  • Network Interfaces for example Ethernet.
  • Protocol specific applications.
  • Network protocols.
  • Nodes in the network this means router, standardHost.
