Cao [4, 15] has done some pioneering work to reduce the long query delay associated with basic IR based strategy by introducing the idea of updated invalidation report (UIR).
Thus, a large number of uplink requests are also resulted due to the invalidation of cache contents.
To overcome the demerits of existing IR and UIR strategies, this paper presents a synchronous stateful cache invalidation strategy that reduces the query latency, disconnection overheads, use of wireless channel and conserve the client battery energy.

The cache invalidation method was proposed [Barb 94] to minimize the data transfer in both directions: the downlink and the uplink.
Based on the timing of the invalidation messages being broadcast by the servers, cache invalidation methods can be either asynchronous or synchronous.
