Analysis of Core-Assisted Routing in Opportunistic Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Opportunistic Networks (ONs) are a newly emerging type of Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) systems that opportunistically exploit unplanned contacts among nodes to share information. As with all DTN environments ONs experience frequent and large delays, and an end-to-end path from the source to destination may only exist for a brief and unpredictable period of time. Such network conditions present unique challenges to message routing. In this paper, the authors present the design and performance analysis of a novel core-based routing protocol for ON routing.
