We consider a generic Delay/Disruption Tolerant Network (DTN) and we focus our investigation on assessing its performance limits. Our contribution is twofold. First, we propose a framework to evaluate the optimal performance in terms of minimum delay, maximum throughput and minimum number of hops, in the case of multi-hop transmissions. We consider both single and multi traffic flows scenarios. Second, we apply our framework to the case of a real DTN, that exploit the mobility of a public… CONTINUE READING
