Alternative custodians for congestion control in delay tolerant networks

  title={Alternative custodians for congestion control in delay tolerant networks},
  author={Matthew Seligman and Kevin R. Fall and Padma Mundur},
We approach the problem of handling storage congestion at store-and-forward (DTN) nodes by migrating stored data to neighbors. The proposed solution includes a set of algorithms to determine which messages should be migrated to which neighbors and when. It also includes an extension to the DTN custody transfer mechanism enabling a "pull" form of custody transfer where a custodian may request custody of a message from another custodian. This approach allows us to decouple the problem of storage… CONTINUE READING
