Abstract-- Domain Name System (DNS) can be deployed in the
network as a Location Manager (LM) for mobility management.
The suitability of Domain Name System (DNS) as an LM can be
measured by how successfully it can serve to locate a mobile host.
In this paper, we developed an analytical model to measure the
performance of DNS as LM for mobility management techniques
with IP Diversity support based on success rate which takes
into account the radius of the subnet, the residence time of
MH in that subnet, latency in the network and the overlapping
distance of two neighboring subnets. Our analysis shows that for
a reasonable overlapping distance, DNS can serve as an LM with
