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.
