Paper Abstract

Specification and description language (SDL) is an object-oriented formal language defined as a standard by ITU-T. Though SDL is mainly used in describing communication protocols, it is an efficient way to simulate the network performance with SDL tools according to our experience. This paper presents our methodology of SDL-based network performance simulation in such aspects as the simulation platform, the simulation modes and the integrated simulation environment. Note that Telelogic Tau 4.3 SDL suite is used here as the simulation environment though our methodology isn't limited to the software. Finally the SDL-based open shortest path first (OSPF) performance simulation in the wireless private network is illustrated as an example of our methodology, which indicates that SDL is indeed an efficient language in the area of the network performance simulation.
