In [previous papers] we presented the design, specification and proof of correctness of a fully distributed location management scheme for PCS networks and argued that fully replicating location information is both appropriate and efficient for small PCS networks. In this paper, we analyze the performance of this scheme. Then, we extend the scheme in a hierarchical environment so as to scale to large PCS networks. Through extensive numerical results, we show the superiority of our scheme compared to the current IS-41 standard.
