Following is a list of commands related to satellite networking:
$ns_ satnode-geo lon linkargs chan
This is a wrapper method for creating a geo satellite node that first creates a satnode plus two link interfaces (uplink and downlink) plus two satellite channels (uplink and downlink). <chan> defines the type of channel.
$ns_ satnode-geo-repeater lon chan
This is a wrapper method for making a geo satellite repeater node that first creates a satnode plus two link interfaces (uplink and downlink) plus two satellite channels (uplink and downlink).
$ns_ satnode-terminal lat lon
This is a wrapper method that simply creates a terminal node. The <lat> and <lon> defines the latitude and longitude respectively of the terminal.
$ns_ satnode type args
This is a more primitive method for creating satnodes of type <type> which can be polar, geo or terminal.
$satnode add-interface type ll qtype qlim mac_bw phy
This is an internal method of Node/SatNode that sets up link layer, mac layer, interface queue and physical layer structures for the satellite nodes.
$satnode add-isl ltype node1 node2 bw qtype qlim
This method creates an ISL (inter-satellite link) between the two nodes. The link type (inter, intra or cross-seam), BW of the link, the queue-type and queue-limit are all specified.
$satnode add-gsl ltype opt_ll opt_ifq opt_qlim opt_mac opt_bw opt_phy opt_inlink opt_outlink
This method creates a GSL (ground to satellite link). First a network stack is created that is defined by LL, IfQ, Qlim, MAC, BW and PHY layers. Next the node is attached to the channel inlink and outlink.
