Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) represent a class of wireless networks that experience frequent and long lasting partitions due to sparse distribution of nodes in the topology. A traditional TCP/IP setting assumes the definite existence of a contemporaneous end-to-end path between any source-destination pair in the network. Any setting that violates this assumption may be considered as a potential application for the DTN architecture. To cope with this situation, DTN nodes utilize a store-carry… CONTINUE READING
