The Effect of Group Mobility on the Efficacy of Routing in Next Generation Mobile Networks
Paper i proceeding, 2016
A key challenge in next generation mobile networks is ensuring effective routing that efficiently adapts to the special characteristics of the various mobility schemes. The purpose of this paper is to study and illustrate how group mobility affects the network performance of a wireless ad hoc network depending on the type of movement, in a space with or without obstacles. In the scope of this paper, we created a simulator of a MANET that uses AODV routing protocol, while the entities of the network move according to the chosen group mobility model. Despite the fact that the routing protocol supports mobility in general, the results greatly vary depending on the specific mobility scenario. The strong connection between mobility properties and network performance is revealed.
