Abstract

In this paper, we extend NS-2 to simulate Micro-Mobile MPLS frameworks. The extension supports most of the important mechanisms used in the literature. The simulator is based on IEEE 802.11. The important mechanisms for IEEE 802.11 in our module are multi-channel, directional antennas, multiple interfaces, L2-handoff, L2-trigger, bicasting, pre-established LSP, and buffering mechanism. MPLS modules used in this simulator is based on MPLS module (MNS) [8]-[10]. This simulator could be configured to assess performance of Mobile MPLS protocols such as micro mobility-enabled multiprotocol label switching (M-MPLS) [21], fast handoff (FH) and master forwarding chain (MFC)-Micro Mobile MPLS [2], [23] and MiM-MPLS [30]. The simulator is validated for each mechanism. The validation results follow to the theory.
