Next-generation multiservice networks are expected to offer object mobility support as well as node programmability. This paper describes how this may be used to extend the current vision of policy-based network management. It then proposes a system intended to enable evaluation of different mobility policies. We introduce the notion of a network centre of gravity, and use the evaluation framework to show that policies based on it can be advantageous.
