Hi Amine,

There are no limitations of the existing ndn::NetDeviceFace to be used only with PointToPoint devices.  You should be able to use it with csma, wifi, emu, or any other types of devices without problem.  Just create desired topology first and then install NDN stack using ndn::StackHelper.

Just in case, I want to remind that when packets are send out of the face, they are send out in "broadcast" fashion (e.g., for ethernet it will use FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF mac address).  This is not really a problem, but I want to make sure you are aware of that.
