0/5 (0 reviews)

Direct Code Execution (DCE) is a module for ns-3 that provides facilities to execute, within ns-3, existing implementations of userspace and kernelspace network protocols or applications without source code changes. For example instead of using the pseudo application provided by ns-3 V4PingHelper you can use the true ping.


Works with ns-3.28

DCE is not constructed as a typical ns-3 extension module (for the contrib directory), but it is also not a fork either. DCE has its own build system (also based on Waf) and links ns-3 libraries from ns-3-dev or an ns-3 release. Users are strongly recommended to use the [bake build system]( to configure, download, and build DCE. #### Current installation instructions DCE releases are made asynchronously with ns-3 releases. The last DCE release is version 1.10, compatible with ns-3.28. A new release 1.11 is in preparation to coincide with ns-3.31. In the meantime, users are suggested to use the development tree version with ns-3.30 release or with ns-3-dev. Please read the [DCE manual]( for detailed installation instructions.

This ns-3 extension is one or more contributed modules.
