As you may know, we are working towards finalizing the latests details of the NR-U extension for ns-3, in which all of us could test many of the different techniques proposed and described in the COMST paper above.

Last but not least, again, thanks to all of you who have requested access to the software and are daily working to improve it. We are really proud to be more than 150 members!
