First-hop Redundancy Protocols in Omnet++

Abstract

The high-availability comprises a critical feature of any enterprise local area or data-center network. Because of the importance of high-availability, network designers and administrators expect support from tools aiding to deliver the correct configuration. Simulation is widely accepted approach for testing network design and configuration helping to reveal possible issues in functionality and performance. OMNeT++ simulator provides INET framework offering models of Internet devices, protocols and mechanisms. This paper presents an extension of INET framework with two high-availability protocols, namely, HSRP and GLBP. This extension enables to accurately simulate scenarios with default-gateway redundancy features, which was not easily possible before. In the paper, we briefly overview the basic concepts of these protocols, describe the design of simulation models and present verification and validation results.
