Compared with topology-based routing, location-based routing scales much better in large-scale mobile ad hoc networks. Location-based routing protocols assume that a location service is available to provide location information of each node in the network. Many location service protocols have been proposed in the literature. However, either they do not scale well in large-scale network environment, or they are not reliable if the network is highly dynamic. We propose a multiple home regions based location service protocol in large-scale mobile ad hoc networks. Theoretical analysis shows that the proposed protocol outperforms existing protocols in terms of both scalability and reliability.
