Cost analysis of mobility protocols

Abstract Increasing demand for mobility in wireless data
network has given rise to various mobility management
schemes. Most of the analysis on mobility protocols used
Random Waypoint mobility model However, the analy-
sis done earlier ignored some major costs, resulting in an
incomplete estimation and used random waypoint model
which fails to represent realistic movement pattern. In this
paper, we have developed an analytical cost model consid-
ering all possible costs related to mobility management, and
have used city section mobility model, a realistic mobility
model, to compute the total costs of two mobility protocols:
HIMPv6 and SIGMA. We have defined two novel perfor-
mance metrics, normalized overhead and efficiency, for mo-
bility protocols based on the signaling costs and used them
to evaluate the performance of SIGMA and HMIPv6 pro-
