Abstract

Mobility databases such as home location register and visitor location register are adopted to support mobility management in personal communications services networks. If a visitor location register fails or crashes, the subscribers' services will be seriously degraded due to the loss or corruption of location information. In this paper, we optimize utilization of demand re-registration messages for an adaptive p-persistent backoff database failure restoration scheme. An analytical model is developed and validated with simulations to obtain the optimal utilization using appropriate parameters so that the failed visitor location register is restored with the fastest speed. Some interesting aspects on the performance are studied and their deep insights are observed, such as effects of message sizes on choices of system parameters, effects of the inaccurate estimated number of stations, etc. One observation is that optimizations of utilization and successful transmission probability are two different goals, and a value to achieve the optimal successful transmission probability does not necessarily ensure optimal utilization. Furthermore, we also propose a scheme how to handle the problem with inaccurate (estimated) number of stations.
