This paper aims to support quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning, particularly the guarantee for end-to-end data delivery delay, in mobile opportunistic networks. The QoS-aware delivery probability (QDP) is introduced to reflect the capability of a node to deliver data to a destination within a given delay budget. Each node maintains a set of QDPs to make autonomous decisions for QoS-aware data transmission. At the same time, a prioritized queue is employed by each mobile node. To support… CONTINUE READING
