Simulation of Mobility Management Protocols and Algorithms of Emerging and Future Wireless Telecommunication Networks
Mobility is the core feature in wireless communication networks. Mobile subscribers can make or receive calls regardless of their location as far as they are in the radio coverage area of the base station that they are attached to. The phone numbers are not tied to any particular location area. The phone numbers are dedicated to the mobile subscribers and they are portable, too. Communication between two parties continues without any interruption, when the mobile subscriber moves from one radio coverage area to another during the call. Mobility management protocols and algorithms are key to all these wireless communication network features. In this study, we introduce different wireless communication technologies and mobility management protocols. We discuss new simulation environments and their capabilities to model mobility management protocols and algorithms that include simulation of handover and simulation of mobility management protocols in IP based wireless networks.
