Description:

Network Analysis and Routing eVALuation, referenced as NARVAL has been designed
on top of the Scilab environment. It has been created at the University of
Luxembourg within the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and
Trust (SnT). The Centre carries out interdisciplinary research and graduate
education in secure, reliable, and trustworthy ICT systems and services.

This Scilab External Module (http://atoms.scilab.org/toolboxes/NARVAL)
is focusing on the analysis of network protocols and algorithms. In fact, each
network of communicating devices such as computers, phones or sensors, needs to
follows specific rules in order to organize and control the data exchange
between source and destination nodes. Communication protocols enable to perform
the network topology, and to propagate the data traffic between network
entities. The main goal of our toolbox is to provide a complete software
environment enabling the understanding of available communication algorithms,
but also the design of new schemes in order to improve the traffic behaviour of
any connection between two network entities.

NARVAL permits to generate random topologies according to various algorithms
such as Locality, Waxman, and Barabasi-Albert and hierarchical models. The user
can also design his own topology by providing nodes' coordinates, visualization
parameters, and also links' information. The combination of these functions
enables to build a large range of topologies with distinct routing properties.
Thus the NARVAL module permits to study the impact of routing algorithms on the
effectiveness of transmission protocols used by data communications on a network
topology. We provide a set of basic functions to create network graphs, compute
routing algorithms (AODV, BFS, DFS, Bellman-Ford, Dijkstra, Flood,
Floyd-Warshall, Multiple Paths, RPL, ARC, etc.) on them and finally make
statistical analysis on the data exchange. The mobility of nodes
(Mobile/Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork MANET/ VANET) is also supported according to
models such as Random Direction, Random Walk, Random Way Point, etc.

The target audience of this external module includes academics, students,
engineers and scientists. We put some efforts to build detailed help files. The
description of each function has been carefully done in order to facilitate the
end users' comprehension. It is often accompanied with explicit diagrams. Our
simulations and results obtained with NARVAL have been published in several IEEE
international conferences and journals. This research contribution was partially
supported by the following European FP7 projects:
* U2010 (http://www.u2010.eu)
* EFIPSANS (http://www.efipsans.org)
* IoT6 (http://www.iot6.eu)
* BUTLER (http://www.iot-butler.eu).
