In user-centric networking users become the endpoint of their communication sessions. This approach intrinsically accounts for mobility management, as terminal handovers and session migrations are expected when the user moves. However, effectiveness of session migration procedure is not trivial to assess, because it mainly concerns the subjective impressions that human users have about their interaction with the system, thus a common approach is to carry out user-evaluation at live demos.
