ISAM: Interoperability Architecture for Simulators and Radio Models
Since each discrete event simulator (DES) is implemented differently, each DES defines a unique application programming interface (API) between its core and the radio models. These differences lead to a situation where radio models are heavily tied to a particular DES. Ideally, radio models should be DES-agnostic, allowing flexibility in their use to reduce licensing costs, shorten the development cycle, and accelerate the improvement of radio technology. The objective of the proposed system is to provide a radio model adapter that supports the complete, automatic, and verified conversion of a wide range of radio models. Our approach addresses all aspects of the problem including identifying necessary translations, designing and implementing an adapter that automatically performs those translations, and testing and validating the conversion of a range of radio models. A core goal is to serve as an enabling technology to allow legacy radio models to be combined with DESs and other components in new ways, reducing the cost and delays associated with current practices. The proposed work has the potential to dramatically improve the compatibility and flexibility of existing simulation technologies and models, and has already been demonstrated successfully converting several radio models.
