In search of a theory of mobility management

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Modern networks are becoming mobile networks which must accommodate a broad range services with differing mobility characteristics. Consequently, there is an impetus to understand mobility and its effect on communications systems. Of particular interest are the unique stresses imposed by mobile computing and especially mobile computer programs (agents). We propose a theoretical framework for the study of mobility tracking based on user/service/host location probability distributions and show that mobile agents could severely stress the signaling network.
