In AgBr, the Ag ions (and corresponding Br ions) are absent from the crystal lattice causing Schottky defects. However, Ag +ions are exceptionally mobile and they have a tendency to move about inside the lattice. So they complement the Schottky defects with Frenkel defects with the Ag+ ions trapped in interstitial spaces. This is because of the similar size of Ag ions and Br ions and the small size of Ag +ions and the fact that Ag ions have a property to be mobile in the structure.
