Boissaux, M. and Munro, A and Marshall, I. W. and Mckee, P. (2000) A Java-Based Framework For Comparing Mobility Policies In Networks With Dynamic Resource Management. In: Proceedings ITC specialist seminar on mobility, 2000-03-01, Lilehammer, Norway.
Next-generation multiservice networks are expected to offer object mobility support as well as node programmability. This paper describes how this may be used to extend the current vision of policy-based network management. It then proposes a system intended to enable evaluation of different mobility policies. We introduce the notion of a network centre of gravity, and use the evaluation framework to show that policies based on it can be advantageous.
