Mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is demand-based, self configurable, network without any existing infrastructure. Data caching can significantly improve the efficiency of information access in a wireless ad-hoc network by reducing the access latency and bandwidth usage. Every Mobile Hosts (MHs) can move arbitrarily and communicate with other MHs by using multihop wireless links. However, designing efficient distributed caching algorithms is nontrivial when network nodes have limited memory. In this paper, we consider the cache placement problem of minimizing total data access cost in ad-hoc networks with multiple data items and nodes with limited memory capacity. Defining benefit as the reduction in total access cost. The approximation algorithm is amenable to localized distributed implementation, which is shown via simulations to perform close to the approximation algorithm.
