Mobility Modeling for Personal Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A Personal Network (PN) is a user-centric design interconnecting numerous devices belonging to a user in different geographic locations, such as home, office, car, etc., to form a single global network to offer fully personalized services. In PNs devices of the user move in different groups, where these groups merge and split. In this paper, the authors design and simulate a PN Mobility Model (PNMM) to capture the characteristics of movements of devices in PNs. They propose a simple stability evaluation method for group mobility models and apply the method to PNMM. Through the stability evaluation, they find that PNMM possesses long-term steady state behavior.
