Mobility management is a new emerging issue in wireless sensor networks. Characteristics and resources specifications and limitations represent a real challenge for the algorithm designers in order to meet with the various applications requirements. Many handoff mechanisms are proposed to deal with this concern. Smart-HOP is a handoff process which is currently developed at The CISTER research unit and specifically designed for WSNs. An evaluation of this algorithm performances and behavior is needed to setup its parameters. For this purpose, an analytical analysis and a simulation model were developed and, based on their results, the implementation of the algorithm was performed.
