Simulation of computer networks (wired and wireless) and other. The primary application area of the simulator is the simulation of communication networks.

NED files define the model structure (topology). Behaviour and a subset of module parameters is added via C++ code behind simple modules, and module parameters which are left unassigned in NED files will get their values from ini files.

The simulation results are recorded into output vector (.vec) and output scalar (.sca) files. The capability to record simulation results has to be programmed into the simple modules, so if you're dealing with a simulation model written by someone else, it may or may not create these files.
