The Survey of Mobile Emulator and Wireless Research recites:

“…… Emulator provides environment without modifications to the software and validates software solutions for ad hoc network. A field test will show rather the simulation work is going on right track or not and going from the simulator to the real thing directly to analyze the performance and compare the results of routing protocols and mobility models. Analyzing and choosing an appropriate emulator according to the given environment is a time-consuming process. …….. ”

The RAMON thesis recites:

“… RAMON is a development platform that combines emulation and simulation to facilitate the analysis of performance bottlenecks in a quicker and more efficient matter. Additionally, RAMON recreates more realistic environments for wireless network protocols where attenuation, latency delay, and bandwidth can be modified as required by the experimenter. The second contribution is a predictive extension for Mobile IP using a Kalman filter. The forecasting of speed and trajectory allows the protocol to avoid late registration and improve performance at high speed…”

While the Internet Mobility Protocol recites:

“…We added two new entities to the protocol: the ghost-mobile node and ghost foreign agent. The entities preemptively react to the environment and allow much faster and quicker handoff. The predictable protocol improves the performance of Mobile IP … “

Mobile IP shows was used for Mobility Protocol as that was the most popular mobility protocol at the time, however the mobility aspects and methods remains the same.
