In this paper, the network traffic requirements of a virtual world based on Wonderland are studied. Object synchronization and voice traffic are studied and several experimental measures are made in order to obtain an accurate model. A simulator based on ns-3 is developed that allows us to obtain some useful preliminary results about the networking resources needed to execute Wonderland. The simulation model used in this preliminary study can be used in future experiments to obtain useful results on scalability and needed network resources when the Wonderland Virtual World is used by a number of distributed users placed in different locations.
