CoRE Simulation Models for Real-time Networks

Version 3 (modified by pmeyer, 3 years ago) (diff)



CoRE4INET is an extension to the INET-Framework for the event-based simulation of real-time Ethernet in the OMNEST/OMNeT++ simulation system. Currently CoRE4INET supports at least parts of:

  • TTEthernet (AS6802)
  • IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) / Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)
  • IEEE 802.1Q / IEEE P802.1p VLANs and Priorities


CoRE4INET was first introduced as TTE4INET at the 4th International Workshop on OMNeT++ (2011) along with the 4th International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques (2011). You can find the publication and slides here.

Since there were changes necessary to support OMNeT++ 4.2 and INET 2.0, it was completely redesigned. When more real-time Ethernet protocols were added the project was renamed from TTE4INET to CoRE4INET to show that it does not only contain time-triggered protocols.
