As wireless users have become increasingly mobile, tracking their location and establishing communications links between them has become critical. Location management, paging, and routing are the key technologies for performing these crucial functions. This comprehensive book covers past, present, and future advances in location management and routing protocols for both single-hop and multi-hop mobile wireless networks.

It provides you with an in-depth examination of mobility, location management, paging, and radio resources for cellular networks, and it focuses on routing protocols and medium access control techniques for mobile ad hoc networks. Key topics discussed in detail include mobility models and traces, radio resource management, blanket and intelligent paging, location updating, location area planning, medium access control techniques, and unicast and multicast routing, as well as routing in next generation wireless and pervasive networks.
