5G-LENA v2.4 is available

New release available from April 2023 (v2.4)

5G-LENA v2.4 (compatible with ns-3.38)

We are pleased to announce that 5G-LENA v2.4 is now available for download. This release is compatible with the latest ns-3.38.

Some of the most important features of the 5G-LENA v2.4 include a new traffic generator framework that allows to simulate NGMN traffic applications for mixed traffic scenarios and advanced and multi-flow 3GPP XR traffic applications, such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Cloud Gaming (CG) applications. Various examples and tests are included. Also, with this release we have started to test the reproducibility of the examples, e.g. the examples that are part of this reproducibility testing will fail if the result is not as expected for the specific parameters configuration. Also, various bugs have been fixed. All the included features can be found in RELEASE_NOTES.md and CHANGES.md.

The information about the recommended ns-3 releases and how to install nr can be found in the README.md file or https://cttc-lena.gitlab.io/nr/html/index.html#getting-started, while all the available features are listed in CHANGES.md and RELEASE_NOTES.md.

Updating the software is as easy as doing a git pull command, for both ns-3-dev and nr module. For ns-3-dev, make sure you go to the ns-3.38 branch, and for nr on 5g-lena-v2.4.y branch. For any problem related to the installation, please open an issue ticket on the NR gitlab repository. For any comment, doubt, and discussion, remember that we have a google group for the 5G-LENA users: https://groups.google.com/g/5g-lena-users.

We would love to hear from you if you have any feedback, possible code contributions, or an idea for possible collaboration to improve 5G-LENA!

Thank you for your support!

The 5G-LENA team
