Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) exhibit unpredictable topology with heterogeneous node contact rates, high mobility and limited information. When dealing with such challenging environments, the mobility model has a key role in testing the performance and proving the expected behavior of routing algorithms. While synthetic mobility models have been largely used to measure quantitative aspects of routing protocols, they are not sufficient as they do not capture reliably the properties of movement in the real life scenarios. In this paper we present some experimentation done in THE_ONE simulation environment, involving our M2MShare, a peer-to-peer (P2P) delay tolerant file sharing platform for mobile networks. For testing purposes we have chosen the Working Day Movement (WDM) model which is shown to make a good approximation of human mobility patterns and provides the flexibility of configuring real life test scenarios.
