Modeling Location Management in Personal Communications Services

Lam, D. and Jannink, J. and Cox, D. and Widom, J. (1995) Modeling Location Management in Personal Communications Services. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab. (Publication Note: IEEE International Conference on Universal Personal Communications, 1996.)




This paper presents a framework for modeling and evaluating the performance of location management schemes for a Personal Communication Services (PCS) network. The models take into account complex human behaviors, and are based on actual measurements of these behaviors. Real measurements are a crucial factor in achieving realistic performance evaluations. We have developed a powerful and highly configurable simulator based on the framework. Simulation results, showing the performance of an existing location management standard, IS-41, are presented in terms of database performance requirements (transactions per second) and network traffc load (messages per
