We propose a location management, 'Mobility/Traffic Adaptive Location Management,' that dynamically changes the Location Area (LA) in response to the terminal's mobility and traffic characteristics to reduce the location management traffic in the air. In this paper, we investigate the following subjects for realizing the proposed location management. First, we present a method of calculating the optimum LA size. Second, we present methods for dynamic LA set up. Third, we present the architecture of the proposed location management. Finally, we evaluate its performance.
