The inherent difficulty in faithfully modeling wireless channel characteristics in simulators has prompted researchers to build wireless network testbeds for realistic testing of protocols. While previous testbeds are mostly designed to provide a research environment of static wireless networks, the paper is aimed to assess protocols used for mobile wireless networks (such as an onboard network on public transport vehicles). In this paper, the authors describe the on-going efforts in designing and implementing a network mobility testbed for NEtwork MObility (NEMO) protocol. This paper attempts to provide an initial reference to identify the feature set necessary for a network mobility testbed.
