While many topology models used in current simulations are
questionable, their are few topology generators for generating
AS level distributions.

1. GT-ITM: It is helpful for generating 2-level transit-stub 
   hierarchies. Both Waxman and random edge models can be generated
   using them. 

2. Waxman based edge models can also be generated using Liming Wei/Lee 
   Breslau's rtg.

3. INET can be used for generating flat random graph. 

4. router-level/AS-level generator: BRITE. It is helpful for generating
   both Waxman and BarabasiAlbert.

While, I have used BRITE..I dont know about the remaining. You can 
look into their web pages for more details and additional information.
