Summary:
Location management in a mobile network provides functions to locate, identify, and validate a terminal or user. The purpose of this thesis is to describe a scheme that would be useful in a wireless network for managing the location of mobile users. This thesis presents a new, distributed location management strategy for mobile systems. Its features are fast location update and query, load balancing among location servers, and scalability. The strategy employs dynamic hashing techniques and quorums to manage location update and query operations. Location information of a mobile host is replicated at a subset of location servers.
