Abstract

Energy-awareness and resilience are becoming increasingly important in network research. So far, they have been mainly considered independently from each other, but it has become clear that there are important interdependencies. Resilience should be achieved in a manner which is energy-efficient, and energy-efficiency objectives should respect the networks' need to be prepared to observe and react against disruptiveactivity. Meeting these complementary and sometimes conflicting research objectives demands novel strategies to support energy-efficient resilience management. However,the effective evaluation of cross-cutting energy and resilience management aspects is difficult to achieve using the tool support currently available. In this paper, we explore a range of network simulation environments and assess their ability to meet our energy and resilience modelling objectives as a function of their technical capabilities. Furthermore, ways in which these tools can be extended based on previous related implementations are also considered.
