Location Management Cost Strategies in Cellular Networks
The growth of cellular users using to communicate at any place and any time increases the signaling activities among the cellular networks. To reduce the network costs and better usage of radio resources, an efficient location management scheme: location updating and paging strategies are essential to improve the network performance. This paper presents a mixed location management strategy that combines some strategies of location update and paging schemes to minimize the overall cost. Simulation results indicate that the location management performance of using larger memory system shows better result in reducing the location management costs.
