Even when users are moving, a major problem in such a mobile networks is how to locate Mobile Hosts (MHs). In this paper we propose mobility strategy that minimizes the costs of both operations, the location registration and the call tracking, simultaneously. In numerical results, the proposed method proves that it has more improved performance than the previous methods.
