Rapid simulation of wireless systems

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The simulation of wireless systems such as cellular or personal communication systems comprises both discrete and continuous time processes. To accelerate these simulations, we propose the use of interval jumping, a novel technique that allows the execution of a continuous time model to proceed in irregularly sized jumps rather than in the traditional time-stepped manner. The foundations for this mechanism are laid out in the light of the simulation of a complex simulation model which includes radio propagation, channel allocation, transmitter power control and user mobility. We conclude with experimental results comparing sequential and parallel execution of these accelerated simulations which indicate the good potential of our technique.
