Network Mobility (NEMO) is concerned with managing the mobility of an entire network and included one or more Mobile Routers (MRs) which are connected as gateways to the Internet. This paper proposes the optimal handoff decision mechanisms, not only avoiding the 'ping-pong effect' and frequent handoffs, but also reducing handoff latency under multi-hop network mobility. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed method is well adapted for supporting network mobility over traditional handoff decision algorithms.
