Video on Demand in a IEEE 802.11p based Vehicular Network


This page describes the ns-3 simulations used in the following paper:

Thomas Begin, Anthony Busson, Isabelle Guerin-Lassous, Azzedine Boukerche, Video On Demand in IEEE 802.11p-based Vehicular Networks: Analysis and Dimensioning. MSWIM 2018.

So, please cite this paper if you use this simulation scenario.

The ns-3 files are available here. It corresponds to scenario 1 in the paper. It is a zip archive that contains the ns-3 main file (the .cc file), a mobility trace file, a the video trace file (Star Wars Episode 4 but only for 10 minutes) and a script to run the simulations automatically. The best way to run the simulation:

  • Put the ns-3 main file in the folder ns-3/scratch (as usual)
  • Create two folders in the ns-3 directory: mobilityTrace and videoTrace and put the mobility trace file and video trace file in it
  • You can run the simulation directly from the ns-3 main file (for a distance between RSU=4000 meters)

            ./waf --run "scratch/vanet-videoTCP-scenario1 --distanceRSU=4000"

  • You can use the script to run 10 simulations for distance between RSU varying between 1500 to 8000 meters. It has to be put and executed from the ns-3 folder. Output are given in different output files in the ns-3 directory.
