Abstract

This research aims to highlight the benefits of using free software based tools for studying a LTE mobile network with realistic parameters. We will overload this LTE network and offload it through data offloading techniques such as small cells and WiFi offload. For this research, discreteevent open software network simulator ns3 will be implemented. Ns3 is a network simulator based on the programming language C++, and has all the necessary libraries to simulate an LTE and WiFi network.
