On the Correlation of Geographic and Network Proximity at Internet Edges and its Implications for Mobile Unicast and Multicast R
Signicant eort has been invested recently to accelerate handover operations in a next generation mobile Internet. Corresponding works for developing ecient mobile multicast management are emergent. Both problems simultaneously expose routing complexity between subsequent points of attachment as a characteristic parameter for handover performance in access networks. As continuous mobility handovers necessarily occur between access routers located in geographic vicinity, this paper investigates on the hypothesis that geographically adjacent edge networks attain a reduced network distances as compared to arbitrary Internet nodes. We therefore evaluate and analyze edge distance distributions in various regions for clustered IP ranges on their geographic location such as a city. We use traceroute to collect packet forwarding path and round-trip-time of each intermediate node to scan-wise derive an upper bound of the node distances. Results of dierent scanning origins are compared to ob...
