The tracking of mobile terminals served by base stations supported by respective switches are formed into respective peer groups of switches in which the peer groups are then formed into a hierarchical logical network having a prescribed number of levels of scope S, and in which individual ones of the switches serve as a home switch for respective ones of said wireless terminals is enhanced. Specifically, responsive to receiving a registration message sent by one of the wireless terminals, the receiving switch notifies the home switch associated with the sending terminal. The home switch, in turn, notes the current location of that terminal and sends a similar message to the switch serving the zone in which the sending wireless terminal was last located. The latter switch, responsive to receipt of the message sets a pointer that points to (a) the current location of the sending wireless terminal if the switch is within the scope of the current location of the sending terminal or (b) the home switch if the switch is outside of the scope of the current location of the sending terminal.
