Efficient and Flexible Location Management Techniques for Wireless Communication Systems

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.
