[fr] IPv6 was defined before IEEE 802.11 WiFi, thus there is an issue in IPv6 over IEEE 802.11 WiFi networks: IPv6 relies on layer-2 multicast packets while WiFi was defined for IPv4, which is mostly unicast.
The aim of this Master Thesis is to simulate IPv6 unicast and multicast traffic over IEEE 802.11 network and based on the number of nodes within the IEEE 802.11 WiFi networks. The purpose of this Master Thesis is twofold.
First, after a depth understanding of IPv6 multicast protocols, the behaviour of three different operating systems has been sniffed and analysed in four different scenarios: power on, idle, wake up and normal traffic.
Next, an IPv6 traffic pattern is obtained from the analysed traffic and simulated in different mixed environments the modified ns-3 network simulator varying the number of nodes and the percentage of each operating system. The results obtained from the simulations are analysed based on three performance metric: packet loss, latency and throughput.
This Master Thesis concludes with the impact of the IPv6 traffic based on the number of nodes, operating system and the IPv6 traffic mode used, multicast and unicast.
