Rahaman, Ahadur, Abawajy, Jemal and Hobbs, Michael 2007, Taxonomy and survey of location management systems, in 6th IEEE/ACIS International Conference on Computer and Information Science : (ICIS 2007) in conjunction with 1st IEEE/ACIS International Workshop on e-Activity (IWEA 2007) : proceedings, The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc (IEEE), Los Alamitos, Calif., pp. 369-374.
In wireless mobile computing, location management is introduced whenever users move from one place to another. In order to track a mobile user, the system must store information about their current location and report new locations to a home base station. Numerous techniques have been proposed to optimally manage the location of mobile hosts in mobile networks. This paper attempts to present a more structured and comprehensive analysis of the current location management techniques architectures and their technology enablers. We discuss some of the principal issues involved in location management and present a taxonomy and survey of location management strategies that have been proposed in the literature over the years for mobile computing systems.
