Delay-capacity tradeoffs for mobile networks have been analyzed through a number of research work. However, Levy mobility known to closely capture human movement patterns has not been adopted in such work. Understanding the delay-capacity tradeoff for a network with Levy mobility can provide important insights into understanding the performance of real mobile networks governed by human mobility. This paper analytically derives an important point in the delay-capacity tradeoff for Levy mobility, known as the critical delay.
