Jannink, J. and Lam, D. and Shivakumar, N. and Widom, J. and Cox, D. (1996) Efficient and Flexible Location Management Techniques for Wireless Communication Systems. In: Proceedings of 2nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking (MOBICOM'96), November 1996, White Plains, NY.
We consider the problem of managing the information required to locate users in a wireless communication system, with a focus on designing and evaluating location management techniques that are effcient, scalable, and flexible. The three key contributions of this paper are: (1) A family of location management techniques, HiPER (for Hierarchical ProfilE Replicationthat effciently provide lifelong (non-geographic) numbering with fast location lookup; (2) Pleiades, a scalable eventdriven wireless system simulator with realistic calling and mobility patterns derived from several months of real traffc traces; and (3) multiday simulations comparing our proposed location management techniques with current and previously proposed techniques on a realistic geographical and network topology.
