SIMORA: SIMulating Open Routing protocols for Application interoperability on edge devices.


In low-power networks, sending data over the network is one of the largest energy consumers. Therefore, any application running in such an environment must reduce the volume of communication caused by their presence. All the state of the art network simulators focus on specific parts of the network stack. Due to this specialization, the application interface is simplified in a way, that often only fictive and abstract applications can be simulated. However, we want to gain insights about the interoperability between routing and real application for the purpose of reducing communication costs. For this purpose, we propose our new simulator SIMORA in this contribution. In order to demonstrate the possibilities of SIMORA, we deploy a simple distributed application. Then, we develop advanced techniques like the dynamic content multicast to reduce the number of messages and the volume of data sent. In our experiments, we achieve reductions of up to 94% in number of messages and 29% in bytes transferred over the network compared to the traditional multicast approach.
