To simplify use of WSNet1 and to add value to it against WSNet2, WSNet1 configuration in WSim has been fixed to a perfect physical radio layer. Thus it allows you to run easily and fastly a simulation, if you don't care about external perturbations on the communications between nodes. Simulation time is infinite.

However, if you need an accurate simulation taking into consideration interferences, mobility (nodes psitions) or gathering measures, you have to use WSNet2.

More informations on WSNet2 features, installation, and usage are available on the WSNet website.
