There is always a trade-off occurs when the location of the device will be updated (when the device is in moving condition) and the device sending effort. Here, the authors will follow dynamic location management strategy that has the following features: all location servers need not maintain location information about every mobile device, a coterie based approach is adopted for location update and send, every device move does not result in location updates, location updates are done at a subset of location servers, a subset of location servers are queried when a mobile device is to be located.
