Routing protocols in delay tolerant networks usually utilize multiple message copies to guarantee the message delivery, in order to overcome unpredictable node mobility and easily-interrupted connections. A store-carry-and-forward paradigm was also proposed to further improve the message delivery. However, excessive message copies lead to the shortage of buffer and bandwidth. The spray and wait routing protocol has been proposed to reduce the network overload caused by the buffer and… CONTINUE READING
