Abstract

Cellular networks are expected to be upgraded to offer Personal Communication Services (PCS). The mobility management and wireless call control approach used in cellular networks are currently being proposed for use in PCS networks. Recent work indicates that both the signaling load and database update rates caused by these mobility management and call control procedures will increase significantly in next generation PCS networks. In this paper, we propose and analyze a new cluster-based architecture and define algorithms to effectively handle mobility management and call control functions for PCS. We assume an ATM network infrastructure. Some of the key aspects of our proposal include simplifying the mobile location and tracking function, performing connection setup in segments, eliminating the need for user service profile downloads between networks, and more efficient routing of connections by removing the need for an anchor switch. Advantages of this approach include a reduction in signaling traffic load, improved call/connection setup delays, and more efficient routing of connections. We carry out an analysis of our solution for high-tier PCS applications.
