Rather than months, service contracts may span hours or minutes. Connectivity, however, is just one of many possible services. Providers will begin to offer network and application-level services(More)
An important issue in the design of future Personal Communication Services (P C S) networks is the efficient management of location information. T h e current IS-41 standard P C S architecture uses a centralized database, the Home Location Register (H L R) , to store service and location information of each mobile registered in the PCS network. If the H L R(More)

In an IP network, each packet carries IP addresses(More)
The current IS-41 standard PCS architecture uses a centralized database, the Home Location Register (HLR), to store service and location information of each mobile registered in the PCS network. However this is a single point of failure, therefore distributed database architectures have been proposed as possible architectures for future mobile networks. The(More)
