CTG: a connectivity trace generator for testing the performance of opportunistic mobile systems
The testing of the performance of opportunistic communication protocols and applications is usually done through simulation as i) deployments are expensive and should be left to the final stage of the development process, and ii) the number of varying parameters in these systems is so high that it would be very hard to conduct thorough testing of all the functionality within a single deployment. Therefore, protocols and applications are often plugged into mobility simulators to test their performance; however, until recently, most of the testing has been conducted with random mobility models which do not mirror reality. Furthermore, despite disconnections playing a very prominent role in the performance of any opportunistic mobile system, most models do not really account for it. A different approach to testing is the use of real traces of movement collected in specific domains as test cases. These cases, however, do not allow for flexible performance testing, as they are specific for...
