Flexible Data Dissemination Strategy for Effective Cache Consistency in Mobile Wireless Communication Networks
In mobile wireless communication network, caching data items at the mobile clients is important to reduce the data access delay. However, efficient cache invalidation strategies are used to ensure the consistency between the data in the cache of mobile clients and at the database server. Servers use Invalidation Reports (IRs) to inform the mobile clients about data item updates. This paper proposes and implements a multicast based strategy to maintain cache consistency in mobile environment using AVI as the cache invalidation scheme.
