Simulation-based analysis can help to design, study and configure computer networks, in order to assess the best possible solution to particular problems. We propose the creation of a tool for modeling and simulation (M&S) of networks built on the DEVS formalism. DEVS allows for the formal definition of discrete event models interacting together, which can be used to analyze properties about the systems we model. These models can be executed under different simulation environments, and they can be easily integrated with models of other phenomena, described with different techniques. Here, we present the definition and implementation of a library of DEVS models constructed as the initial building block for such a network simulator based on the CD++ tool.
