Abstract

We present an application of the Redback network dynamics analysis tool to mobile ad hoc networks. Our goal is to understand the network properties that arise from different mobility models and to quantify how these differences impact communications. We generate input for Redback as a graph series for varying node density and speed in the random waypoint, reference point group, freeway, and Manhattan mobility models by sampling network topology in the ns-2 network simulator, The graph series are analyzed using several distance and metric measures in the Redback tool and visualized as a time series, one of the Redback output displays. We rind measurable differences among mobility models that may impact mobile communications and influence protocol design.
