In this paper we propose a new location tracking strategy called behavior-based strategy (BBS) based on each mobile's moving behavior. With the help of data mining technologies the moving behavior of each mobile could be mined from long-term collection of the mobile's moving logs. From the moving behavior of each mobile, we first estimate the time-varying probability of the mobile and then the optimal paging area of each time region is derived. To reduce unnecessary computation, we consider the location tracking and computational cost and then derive a cost model. A heuristics is proposed to minimize the cost model through finding the appropriate moving period checkpoints of each mobile. The experimental results show our strategy outperforms fixed paging area strategy currently used in GSM system and time-based strategy for highly regular moving mobiles.
