All-IP networks will be as known the future B3G networks. Many Challenges have to be solved in order to make these networks as good as 2 or 3G networks. One of the main challenges is the developing of suitable mobility solutions to support seamless and fast movements in the network. A lot of mobility management protocols have been developed. These protocols should be analyzed and evaluated before the real implementation takes place. The analysis is performed by means of mathematical models, simulations or implementation in test labs. Mathematical analysis can be performed fast and delivers a good approximation of the performance. Simulation and implementation of protocols deliver detailed results. This takes however a long time. Therefore, it is important to build tools to simplify the analysis of mobility management protocols.
In this paper we introduce a new tool for Comparative Analysis of Mobility Management Protocols “CAMP”. This tool provides a set of functions that can be used to analyze the performance and the total cost of mobility protocols. The structure of the tools enables simple integrating of new protocols, which results in fast evaluate of the protocols.
