In this paper, we propose a novel model to analyze the impact of mobility on the performance of a wireless mobile ad hoc network. In the proposed model, among each mobile communicating pair, one is considered to be stationary while the other is moving with a speed relative to the first one. Using this method, the system performance parameters such as the average radio range dwell time, the link holding time, the link breaking probability, and the system throughput are obtained by both theoretical framework and simulation. The results obtained from the proposed analytical model are observed to match well with simulation results.
