The Internet is becoming increasingly mobile and evolving further away from its initial monolithic wired host-centric design. Many novel networking paradigms are proposed to overcome the Internet's current limitations and to support wireless networks such as DTN (delay-tolerant networking), ANA (Autonomic Network Architecture), and Opportunistic/ Haggle (Pocket-switched Networks). Yet, while these novel paradigms known as Situated and Autonomic Communications (SAC) are being deployed forming independent clouds (or testbeds), they are currently still unable to inter-operate.
