Intelligent Features Within the J-Sim Simulation Environment

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS,volume 3283)


This paper presents our approach integrating a high level of intelligence within telecommunication networks. Artificial intelligence has proved its efficiency in resolving complex issues in different fields like air traffic control, robotics, and medical diagnosis. However its usage in telecommunication networks is still very moderated. The main objectives of our framework is to encourage the deployment of techniques characterized by a high level of intelligence – inspired from the artificial intelligence domain in networking. For this reason, we build an extension, with intelligent capabilities, to the J-Sim simulation environment. This extension proposes an intelligent package having the essential entities required for simulating intelligent features. Using this intelligent package and the abstract node model (INET) proposed by J-Sim for network simulations, it will be possible to test the efficiency of integrating intelligent techniques in networking.
