With the expected increase in popularity of device-to-device (D2D) services, the importance of implementing an LTE simulator that enables fast and accurate evaluations of D2D related technologies is clear. In this paper, we report on a network simulator, D2dSim, with the aim of realizing an LTE-Advanced network that utilizes the D2D feature, i.e., in which direct transmission between mobile stations (MSs) is enabled. Using NS-3, one of the most popular network simulation platforms, D2dSim could become one of the first realistic open-source D2D-capable environments, providing realistic and standard-compliant implementations of a subset of Proximity-based Services complying with the LTE-A standard.
