The purpose of this research effort was to develop a model that provides repeatable Location Management (LM) testing using a network simulation tool, QualNet version 5.1 (2011). The model will provide current and future protocol developers a framework to simulate stable protocol environments for development. This study used the Design Science Research methodology to develop and validate the model as the artifact for this study. This process used LM algorithms as the protocol to provide validity to the test of repeatability of the simulation events.
