This article introduces a software development framework, which amasses object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts and designed procedures, intended to systematize the implementation of link-level simulation tools. This development framework is fully implemented in C++ programming language providing modularity and reusability (improving the coding activity). This framework then constitutes remarkable tool for quickly creating link-level applications. Aiming to evaluate the applicability of this software structure, the conversational service class transmitting at 12.2 kbps and over the Wideband CDMA (WCDMA) Downlink (DL) dedicated channel (DCH) is addressed as a case-study and therefore potential benefits of utilizing such development library are identified. It is shown that the development framework provides flexibility for the software development of link-level simulators remarkably reducing the design, programming and testing stages.
