The simulation methodology described in this document is general so that it can be used with any modelling platform such as NS2, OPNET, OMNET, Qualnet, etc. A complete list of known WiMAX modelling platforms is provided in Annex J. WiMAX Forum is developing an NS-2 Model of WiMAX using this methodology for general use by all WiMAX members. The selection of NS-2 as the modelling platform is based not on its technical superiority but on the fact that it is a public domain platform available under GNU Public License (GPL) and can be freely distributed. We encourage members to use this methodology with other platforms as well.
