Evaluation of the Route Optimization for NEMO in Satellite Networks
NEtwork MObility (NEMO) has been proposed to efficiently manage the mobility of the group of hosts that are moving together as a mobile network. NEMO Basic Support Protocol (BSP) suffers from the problem of inefficient route. A number of route optimization schemes have been proposed in the literature to solve the problem. The schemes are mainly based on four approaches - Delegation-based, Hierarchical, Source routing and BGP-assisted. The approaches have been evaluated in the literature in terms of various performance metrics. The selection of a route optimization approach for NEMO in terrestrial networks is straight forward from the evaluations that implicitly assume NEMO in such networks.
