Communication networks are an important application area for OMNeT++. While fixed topology networks are relatively easy to implement with the available means, an easy to use and effective extension for mobile networks is still missing. We present a framework for OMNeT++ to support simulations of mobile networks. The framework is intended to be deployable ’as is’, without the need to adapt exist- ing modules, as well as to be easily extensible to fit the requirements of a particular problem. Especially, it should provide a unified structure, allowing switching between different levels of abstraction, without changing the communication logic on top of it. The framework has three main components. First it provides a set of independent modules that implement node mobility, dynamic connection management and a wire- less channel model. Second, it includes a library of standard modules for common protocols. And third, it suggests design guidelines for simulation models of wireless devices, e.g., a blackboard for automatically exchanging information between various communication protocols.
