AbstractThe article proposes MAGANET (Map-based Generator of AMI Network Topology), new map-based topology generator, designated for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) networks as well as for the urban wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The correct, reliable representation of network topology is crucial for the correct performance evaluation on large multihop wireless networks. Most of the current work us different random topologies. In the article we describe proposed new tool and its features. The comparison of the properties of topology provided by MAGANET for three different generation modes: uniform random, grid and map based is also presented.
