In order to achieve data delivery in Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN), researchers have proposed the use of store-carry-and-forward protocols: a node there may store a message in its buffer and carry it along for long periods of time, until an appropriate forwarding opportunity arises. This way, messages can traverse disconnected parts of the network. Multiple message replicas are often propagated to further increase delivery probability. This combination of long-term storage and message… CONTINUE READING
