Abstract

See full text

A method and apparatus for intelligent storage and reduction of network information reduces an amount of storage space required for network information by receiving current network information and comparing the current network information with previously received network information. The current network information is saved if the current network information exceeds the previously, received network information by a threshold, and an identifier associated with the current network information is updated if the current network information does not exceed the previously received network information by the threshold.
