This paper proposes a new selective aperiodic checkpointing approach for VLR (Visitor Location Register) failure restoration in wireless mobile networks. In this approach, the VLR data are backed up in the non-volatile storage whenever the location update counter for that VLR exceeds the pre-determined threshold. It restores the backed up VLR data after the failure of the VLR and sends location confirmation request messages only to the selected Registration Areas (RAs) whose information is updated between the time period of back up and failure of the VLR. This is necessary as this information is obsolete in the backed up VLR for this reason and needs to be updated in the restored VLR.
