Abstract : We report on the design objectives and initial design of a new discrete-event network simulator for the research community. Creating Yet Another Network Simulator (Yans) is not the sort of prospect network researchers are happy to contemplate, but this effort may be timely given that ns-2 is considering a major revision and is evaluating new simulator cores. We describe why we did not choose to build on existing tools such as ns-2, GTNetS, and OPNET, outline our functional requirements, provide a high-level view of the architecture and core components, and describe a new IEEE 802.11 model provided with Yans.
