This paper describes the design and use of the interconnection network simulator (ICNS) framework. ICNS is a modular, object-oriented simulation system that has been developed to investigate performance issues in multiprocessor interconnection networks that exploit photonic technology in their design. We describe the ICNS infrastructure, present two distinct photonic interconnection networks that have been modeled using ICNS, and give performance results for each of these networks.
