New Modules and Tests, WiMAC refactoring

Written for openWNS by Maciej Muehleisen on 2009-11-10

Today 3 new modules have been published:
The Glue module is a wired data link layer demonstrating the usage of Functional Units (FUs). It uses Copper as PHY layer. Copper provides FIFO data transfer for a bus topology. It can be configured to use an arbitrary bit error distribution.

The TCP layer is still in experimental state. Included UDP module is working. TCP connection establishment works, Flow Control and ARQ still need review, testing and improvement.

New system tests for IP, Constanze traffic generator, TCP and Glue have been published. They can be used as example configurations for own simulations. IP tests include an example on how to setup tunneling. A Glue test shows how Functional Units can be used to model the behavior of a 802.11 MAC. Constanze tests include advanced stochastic traffic models like MMPP.

WiMAC module has been refactored. Work is still ongoing. The goal is to have a fully functional 802.16e/m OFDMA MAC using the new StaticPriority scheduler in openwns-library.
