My task was to create and analyse a HIP based network mobility in the INET/OMNeT++ simulation environment. INET framework had an essential role in my work as I used its existing models of entities and networks to build my own network. To support network mobility I had to modify the behaviour of the existing modules (HIP and network layer) and create new ones based on the existing ones.

In the first part of my thesis I briefly introduce many locator and identifier splitting methods because they are promising solutions to be the base of network mobility. In this chapter I focus on HIP because of its importance in my work. At the end of this section I compare the locator identifier splitting solutions in aspects I found important and summarize them in a table. In the next part I continue this introduction with an overview of some HIP based network mobility solutions. Here I would like to highlight the protocol developed at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. Finally I describe in detail a realization of HIP based network mobility in simulation environment. I introduce its working mechanisms, benefits, drawbacks and I suggest future development paths.
