Due to limited storage capacity in the DTN nodes, storage congestion occurs when too many bundles are contending for this scarce resource. As a result, bundle loss increases and the delivery ratio of the network suffers. In a proactive scheme, a node can decide whether to accept or reject the custody of a new bundle based on its current storage status. In this paper, we propose a novel proactive congestion control scheme for DTN. Our scheme ranks the incoming bundles using their priority and… CONTINUE READING
