With the advent of high-speed, high-bandwidth mobile radio technologies and low-power, high-computing mobile devices, enterprise-application users are becoming increasingly mobile, rather than remaining fixed or nomadic. To migrate existing real-time applications of such users to these high-mobility networks, knowledge of user movement is essential. In the absence of this knowledge, reestablishing the network-side application context of users can be costly and lead to performance bottlenecks. In this article, learn about a behavioral design pattern for mobility prediction in a nomadic, mobile, or an ad-hoc network.
