You could take a look at the CHP library:
http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/projects/ofa/chp/. The library is influenced by
the CSP calculus, which is used to reason about systems of communicating
processes. Using this, you could model each node of your network as a
CHP process which communicates with the other nodes over channels. All
the communication is synchronous, and the theory behind it is pretty
