This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the OMNeT++ simulation environment and an overview of its ecosystem of ever-growing frameworks, which provide simulation models for diverse communication systems, protocols, and standards.

OMNeT++ (Objective Modular Network Testbed in C++) is a modular, component-based C++ simulation library and framework, primarily for building network simulators. As its name suggests, OMNeT++ features a modular design that separates the discrete-event simulation engine (aka the simulation library or framework) from the network models built on top of it. Discrete-event simulation refers to the technique of modeling systems as a series of events at discrete time instances that represent the potential change to the systems state. In addition to supporting discrete-event simulation, OMNeT++ provides an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and additional tools for model configuration, data analysis, and visualization. Network models built on top of the OMNeT++ framework represent detailed network operations, including sending and receiving data between simulated entities (hosts, servers, routers, switches, mobile stations, and so on) over either wired or wireless transmission media.

OMNeT++ consists of many network models, including various protocols for the traditional TCP/Internet Protocol (IP) network as well as other types of networks, including peer-to-peer/overlay networks (e.g., BitTorrent), cellular networks (e.g., Long Term Evolution (LTE)), vehicular networks, satellite networks, Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANETs), storage networks in parallel/distributed file systems, and so on.

The book covers the most recent advances of the three key points in the OMNeT++ environment:
(1) The latest features that are being added to OMNeT++ itself, including improvements in the visualization options, in data processing, etc.
(2) A comprehensive description of the current state of development and the work in progress of the main simulation frameworks, covering several aspects of communication such as vehicular, cellular, and sensor networks.
(3) The latest advances and novel developments coming from a large research community.

The presentation is guided through use cases and examples, always keeping in mind the practical and research purposes of the simulation process.
- Includes an introduction to the OMNeT++ simulation framework and its main features;
- Gives a comprehensive overview of ongoing research topics that exploits OMNeT++ as the simulation environment;
- Provides examples and uses cases focusing on the practical aspects of simulation.
