I would like to simulate the effects of mutual interference of wireless 
nodes that belong to the same mesh network. Basically mutual interference.

The simulation would also need to include different antenna types that 
are used at each node (omni, sector, directional). Without having ever 
simulated a wireless network it sounds like a complex setup to me. The 
results could be simply bogus because the simulation model isn't 

Maybe an acceptable alternative approach is to statically calculate a 
table that stores the level and variance of interference each node 
generates to every other node. The data in this table would be the input 
to a network emulator that emulates throughput, latency, jitter, loss.
