Abstract--Node mobility has a direct impact on the perfor-
mance evaluation of various network mobility protocols. Unfor-
tunately, most of the analysis on mobility protocols used Random
Waypoint mobility model which does not represent real-world
movement patterns of mobile nodes. In this paper, we have
analyzed City Section mobility model, a realistic mobility model
for the movement in the city streets. We have developed an
analytical model to derive certain stochastic properties, such as,
expected epoch length, expected epoch time, expected number
of subnet crossings and subnet residence time of this model.
Finally, we have applied the model to calculate the signaling
cost of NEMO BSP and compared it with Random Waypoint
mobility model. Results show that the use of realistic mobility
model leads to better estimation of the signaling cost of network
