Paper Abstract

Due to the network's complexity, the network simulation is essential for the development and analysis of internetworking technology. The simulation needs to be performed on certain network topology, which requires the topology generator to generate topology that is similar to real network. The network topology generator evolves from the random model to the hierarchical model, and then to the power-law model. Based on the presentation and analysis of existing topology generators, a novel hybrid topology generator is proposed. The principle of this generator is to divide the network into two hierarchies, and then generate the inter-domain topology based on the power-law model and the intra-domain one on the Waxman model. It is shown that the topologies generated by the proposed generator are more similar to real network than the existing generators.
