WisMon is a Wireless Statistical Monitoring tool that generates real-time statistics from a unified list of packets, which come from possible different probes. This tool fulfills a gap on the wireless experimental field: it provides physical parameters on realtime for evaluation during the experiment, records the data for further processing and builds a single view of the whole wireless communication channel environment. WisMon is available as open source under the Cecill license, via .



Wextool aims to set up, run and make easier the analysis of wireless experiments. It is a flexible and scalable open-source tool that covers all the experimentation steps, from the definition of the experiment scenario to the generation and storage of results. Sources and binaries of Wextool 1.0 are available under the GPLv2 licence at



This simulation module for the ns-3 network simulator is based on the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard. It implements the PMP topology with TDD mode and aims to provide detailed and standard compliant implementation of the standard, supporting important features including QoS scheduling services, bandwidth management, uplink request/grant scheduling and the OFDM PHY layer.



BitHoc (BitTorrent for wireless ad hoc networks) enables content sharing among spontaneous communities of mobile users using wireless multi-hop connections. It is an open source software developed under the GPLv3 licence. A first version of BitHoc has been made public at this URL . We want BitHoc to be the real testbed over which we evaluate our solutions for the support and optimization of file sharing in a mobile wireless environnement where the existence of an infrastructure is not needed. The proposed BitHoc architecture includes two principal components: a membership management service and a content sharing service. In its current form it is composed of PDAs and smartphones equipped with WIFI adapters and Windows Mobile 6 operating system.
