The adaptive routing protocol recently proposed by researchers for opportunistic networks often makes an assumption that when each node makes an intelligent decision of choosing a best forwarder node to route its messages, the chosen forwarder will often have a large buffer storage and will always altruistically devote its resources for forwarding those messages towards their destination nodes. However, copies of messages fill up buffers on receiving intermediate nodes very quickly when few… CONTINUE READING
