Geocasting is a specialized multicasting technique for mobile systems, where messages are multicast to mobile nodes within a given region. In this paper, we address the geocasting problem for cellular mobile networks. The crucial components of the problem are, the geolocation mechanism, dispersion of the geolocation information, and geocast message routing and delivery. Routing and addressing issues and control packet structures have been introduced and treated in the literature. In this paper, we present a cellular geocast architecture to support geocasting with minimal overhead signaling, subject to the quality of service requirements of the particular geocast applications.
