A computer network is one where the computer nodes that form the network are able to exchange data among them. A computer network can be established either using cable wires or wirelessly. In Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANETs), caching of data items among mobile nodes have become an inevitable solution for fast information retrieval. However most of the research works focus on ensuring routing, security and research on maintaining cache consistency within MANETS. Here, the authors focus on providing cache consistency in a mobile environment so as to increase the probability of retrieving up to date data from nearby caching nodes instead of from the server.
