Hi Natalya,

NetDeviceFace objects are created by the Stack Helper:

https://github.com/named-data-ndnSIM/ndnSIM/blob/master/helper/ndn-stack-helper.cpp#L282 <https://github.com/named-data-ndnSIM/ndnSIM/blob/master/helper/ndn-stack-helper.cpp#L282>

A NetDeviceFace is the way that simulated nodes communicate with each other. A NetDeviceFace is associated with a NetDevice object. This object is used by NS3, so that each simulated node communicates with another node.
