In this paper we present DeSiNe, a modular flow-level network simulator. DeSiNe is aimed at performance analysis and benchmarking of Quality of Service routing algorithms and traffic engineering extensions. Several well-known QoS routing algorithms and traffic engineering extensions have been implemented in DeSiNe. The flow-level nature provides scalability, such that large networks and heavy-traffic conditions are possible. In this paper, the functional and structural design of DeSiNe are presented and the usability and various features are illustrated by menas of several examples. The source code of DeSiNe is publicly available.
