Abstract: There has been a significant emphasis on applications of nanotechnology in mobile communications, especially, to redesign the mobile devices for M2M and P2P applications. Due to constraints in power output and an apprehension for explosive growth in nano devices in future, the cell size of the mobile network will shrink. This will lead to a rise in signalling messages interchanged between the device and the network due to an increase in handover related operations. Attempt should be made to reduce the interaction with the network and to simplify the mobility and location management processes. Also, to be considered is the ever increasing demand for data traffic triggered by the proliferation of new generation mobile devices. This paper presents a mobile network architecture based on a novel addressing principle to make more efficient and less complex the mobility and location management processes.
