Scalability Analysis of a Multihomed Network Mobility Protocol
Previous papers have analyzed cost and performance of multihomed network mobility management protocols, such as, Seamless IP diversity-based NEtwork MObility management scheme (SINEMO). However, increase in the number of mobile nodes raises scalability issues which can result in its performance degradation. In this paper, the authors have developed analytical models for scalability analysis of SINEMO in terms of network size, mobility rate, and traffic rate. They have used numerical results to validate the analytical model and compared scalability with basic NEtwork MObility (NEMO) protocol.
