Executive Summary

This paper presents the experimental performance evaluation of the distributed VIrtual Home Region Multi-Hash LOCation Service (VIMLOC). This is, up to the authors' knowledge, the first location management scheme specifically designed and implemented for medium/large-scale Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs,) which are seen as a cost-effective solution to provide broadband wireless access in large areas. Therefore, if the use of geographic routing is assumed for scalability reasons, such a location management is needed to map between the identifier of a node and its current position in the network (i.e., location address).
