WINGS system level simulation platform (working acronym NESTOR)

WINGS NESTOR is a 5G system level simulator for enabling advanced component validations and optimizations. WINGS NESTOR is a discrete event simulation environment for the simulation of heterogeneous networks, extended with new features to support the new functionalities of 5G.

The main modules supported are macro cells, small cells and User Equipment nodes. Based on the Discrete Event Simulation approach, created events are the basic 3GPP signaling events, mobility events, application layer events and also system level events that enable the collection of measurements and the control of auxiliary artifacts (graphics, controls etc.).

The tool has the potential of simulating various scenarios under different assumptions/ conditions. Through the flexibility of available modules, it is possible to customize various parameters.
