The REAL Network Simulator


REAL is a simulator originally intended for studying the dynamic behaviour of flow and congestion control schemes in packet-switched data networks. It provides users with a way of specifying such networks and to observe their behavior. Source code is provided so that interested users can modify the simulator to their own purposes.

For more details on the simulator, please see the REAL 5.0 Overview.
