The Design to Avoid Data Inconsistency in Mobile Networks

I. Brem Navas, N. Aiyyappan, B. Poorna


In this paper, we propose a cache consistency maintenance scheme called Asynchronous protocol (AAP), for mobile environment. It is on the following key features. Use of Auto Asynchronous Protocol (AAP) for both server and Mobile Users cache maintains data consistency. Use of Active and Passive Listeners Agents at both client and server. Use of secured data log database at server. Use of stack and queue intelligent updaters for both server and mobile client


Agents,Intelligent Updaters, Location Register, Location Router.
