The user mobility pattern (UMP) scheme is introduced for location update and paging in wireless systems where mobile terminals (MTs) maintain their history data in a database called user mobility history (UMH). During a location update, a UMP is derived from UMH and registered to the network. Unless the MT detects that it has moved out of the registered UMP, it does not perform any other location update. On the other hand, cells are paged selectively according to the cell entry times in the registered UMP upon a call arrival for the MT. The related data structures and the protocols for the UMP scheme are presented in the paper. The experimental results show that the UMP scheme outperforms the time-based and movement-based location update schemes as well as the blanket, selective, and velocity paging schemes.
