In this letter, we propose a new paging technique, sectional paging, that reduces the paging cost while complying with the delay constraint for mobiles roaming with traceable patterns. Without having to install much additional complexity, the developed scheme predicts the likelihood of residence and assigns optimal paging boundaries. Thus while complying with the required delay constraints, quality-of-service (QoS) measures will not need to be sacrificed as a result of increasing the update threshold. Under the same network conditions and mobile characteristics, simulation results reveal that the usage of sectional paging is most suitable when the roaming pattern is either traceable or can be predicted with reasonable precision.
