The separation of host IDentifier (ID) and LOCator (LOC) is essential to support mobile environments in a permanent manner. Two up-to-date protocols, Mobile Oriented Future Internet (MOFI) and Network-based Host Identifier Locator Separating Protocol (NHILS) are ID/LOC separation architectures by using a distributed hash table. MOFI is a host-based mobility protocol and operates over traditional network environments, whereas NHILS is a network-based protocol and operates in Software Defined Networks (SDNs). In this paper, the authors present the cost model of each MOFI and NHILS, and conduct performance analysis for comparison.
