SIANET Route: PNNI Routing Module of an IPv6-over-ATM Network Simulator



This paper presents the the main features of the routing module of a discrete event-driven simulator called SIANET, which can be used for the design and analysis of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) over Asynchronous Transfer Mode environments for private networks. The simulator, which was constructed in the scope of the MEDIA project (MARS Extensions Developed for IPv6 over ATM) encompasses the Private Network to Network Interface (PNNI) specification developed by the ATM Forum. After a brief description of the simulator, the routing module and the signalling protocol are discussed. The paper finishes with sample simulation results obtained with the presented simulator.
