Abstract-- NEtwork MObility (NEMO) protocols can be used
to manage aggregate mobility of multiple IP-enabled devices on-
board a Low Earth Orbit satellite (a mobile network on-board).
NEMO protocols enjoy several performance advantages, such as
reduced signaling, increased manageability and conservation of
satellite link bandwidth as compared to host mobility protocols
for individual devices. In addition, NEMO protocols can provide
continuous connectivity at upper layers using nested NEMO (a
mobile network attached to another) during unavailability of
