NEtwork MObility (NEMO) protocols are required to maintain connectivity of ongoing sessions for mobile networks that can be formed in bus, train, aircrafts with a wide variety of on-board IP-enabled devices. However, basic NEMO suffers from large delay and packet loss and fails to ensure seamless handover. Multi-homed network mobility solutions can facilitate seamless handover of mobile networks by making use of multiple network interfaces of NEMO. Previous works have not evaluated and compared the performance of multi-homed network mobility protocols that work in two different layers: network layer and transport layer. In this paper, the authors compare the performance of two multi-homed network mobility protocols that exploits make before-break strategy to ensure seamless handover for NEMO.
