The 5th generation mobile and wireless communication systems are expected to accommodate exploding traffic, increasing number of devices, and heterogeneous applications driven by proliferation of IoT and M2M technologies. The centralized mobility management architecture in a current mobile core network cannot satisfy these emerging requirements. In this paper, we introduce novel architecture of distributed mobility management and an autonomous and adaptive mobility management scheme which distributes mobility management function on nodes in a mobile core network in accordance with mobility characteristics of UEs and a management policy. We adopt a biologically-inspired adaptation algorithm, called attractor selection, to accomplish adaptive selection taking into account multiple objectives. Through simulation experiments, we con�rmed that our proposal could accomplish lower delay, higher load balancing, and lower C-plane overhead comparing to other methods including the current standard.
