Cellular mobile systems provides access to a wide range of services and allow mobile terminals (MTs) to move randomly from one place to another within a well-defined geographical area. Due to the growing number of mobile users, global connectivity, and the small size of cells, one of the most critical issues regarding these networks is location management. The challenging task in a cellular system is to track the location of the mobile users effectively so that the connection establishment cost and delay is low. In recent years, several strategies have been proposed to improve the performance of the location management procedure in cellular networks. In this paper, we propose an intelligent approach by taking the User Profile History (UPH); to reduce the location update cost by combining Back-Propagation Algorithm and Cascaded Correlation Neural Network. The implementation of this strategy has been subject to extensive tests. The results obtained confirm the efficiency of UPH in significantly reducing the costs of both location updates and call delivery procedures when compared to the various other strategies well-known in the literature.
