This paper compared the approaches concerning the pinball routing problem that occurs in the nested network in network mobility environment and developed the analytic framework to model. Each model was evaluated of transmission latency, memory usage, and BU's occurrence number at routing optimization process. The estimation result showed that the optimization mechanism achievement overhead existed in each model, and the full optimization of the specific model was not attained because of it. Therefore, the most appropriate approach for routing optimization in nested NEMO can be determined only after a careful evaluation, and the proposals must consider using it in combination with other approaches. The modeling framework presented in this paper is intended to quantity the relative merits and demerits of the various approaches.
