Abstract: In the present world, the network simulators are most important platform which is high price and great value to make different communications frequently all over the world. In the computer network, a different types of network simulators are available. During the past years, bunch of network simulation tools has been developed have impact on the growth of communication field. Network simulators are having the support for the most of general approval technologies and networks in use today such as Wireless LAN’s and Wireless Sensor Networks, the Internet of things (IOT) and so on. In this Paper, we are going to discuss about group of current open-source and commercial network simulators with some features. Main features focused here are, the mobility support, power consumption, OSI layer support and wireless specifications. Under the brief discussion of every simulators, the properties were summarized in the following table. We hope that the end of this paper, comparisons of wired and radio network simulators with these features which is used to select the proper network simulators for future research needs.
