The current Internet has several known challenges, such as mobility, multi-homing, routing scalability, traffic engineering, etc. due to the overloaded semantics of IP address, i.e. the IP address is used as a node IDentifier (ID) as well as a node LOCator (LOC). Thus, the research community has proposed the ID/LOC separation scheme. In this paper, the authors propose a normalized average cost model to analyze the ID/LOC separation networks assuming a local caching mechanism under a single source-destination model.
