Opportunistic networks, as opposed to classic ones, rely on human-carried devices. This leads to a high mobility of all the nodes in the network and a very dynamic topology. Developing good forwarding algorithms for optimum routing in opportunistic networks presents a specific set of challenges. The most notable forwarding solutions rely on social human mobility patterns. They depend on several key factors and assumptions. The purpose of this paper is to provide an increased understanding on… CONTINUE READING
