An intra location area (intra-LA) location update (LU) scheme is proposed to increase paging accuracy for PCS networks. In the proposed scheme, each mobile terminal (MT) has a valid/invalid anchor-cell, which may be dynamically changed. A MT updates its anchor-cell information only when the status is changed, i.e., from the valid to the invalid or vice versa. Therefore, the intra-LA LU cost is minimized. Whenever the MT enters a cell, a timer is set. The MT realizes that the entered cell is its current anchor-cell if the timer expires before leaving the cell. An analytical model is proposed, and the optimal time threshold is derived explicitly.
