Bursty Application

Bursty and VR applications
4.35/5 (17 reviews)
Categories: Utilities

This module comprises the following features:

  1. Adds BurstyApplication and BurstSink as ns-3 applications: they allow to model complex applications by sending large data packets over UDP sockets, fragmenting them into bursts of smaller packets, and reassembling the packets at the receiver, if possible
  2. A tracing system allows to obtain burst-level and fragment-level information at both the transmitter and receiver side
  3. Models a Virtual Reality (VR) traffic source
  4. Acquired VR traffic traces are also included and can be used directly in a simulation, using the TraceFileBurstGenerator
  5. Additional traffic models can be implemented by simply extending the BurstGenerator interface
