For a Personal Communication System (PCS) network to effectively deliver services to the mobile users, it must have an efficient way to keep track of mobile users. Location management fulfills this task through location registration and call delivery procedures. To reduce the signaling traffic, many schemes such as local anchoring, pointer forwarding, and two-level pointer forwarding schemes have been proposed in the past few years. In this paper, we present a novel location management scheme… CONTINUE READING
