This chapter introduces advanced client-side data-caching techniques to enhance the performance of mobile data access. The authors address three mobile caching issues. The first is the necessity of a cache replacement policy for realistic wireless data-broadcasting services. The authors present the Min-SAUD policy, which takes into account the cost of ensuring cache consistency before each cached item is used. Next, the authors discuss the caching issues for an emerging mobile data application, that is, location-dependent information services (LDISs). In particular, they consider data inconsistency caused by client movements and describe several location-dependent cache invalidation schemes. Then, as the spatial property of LDISs also brings new challenges for cache replacement policies, the authors present two novel cache replacement policies, called PA and PAID, for location-dependent data.
