Nomadic

In the context of location information to support IP based emergency services: A user is said to be nomadic if they are constrained within an access network such that their location can be represented as a definitive civic address for that network attachment. The user may move from one network attachment to another but cannot maintain a session during that move. If the user is able to move outside the definitive civic address without losing network attachment then the user is considered to be mobile, not nomadic.
