Simulation with detailed register transfer-level models is crucial for many verification strategies. Thorough verification of a wireless network formed from several RTL WLAN terminal models is impractical since accurate simulations are very time consuming. In this paper, the problem is solved by distributing the simulation among several networked computers or on a multi-processor workstation. The distribution provides over 7-fold speed-up when the wireless network is simulated with eight Linux PCs. Eight-processor workstation provides over 5-fold speed-up for the same simulations.
