In a Delay Tolerant Network (DTN), routing protocols are developed to manage the disconnected mobile nodes. The authors propose a routing protocol named HALF (Handoff-based And Limited Flooding) in DTN that can work in both infra-structured and infra-structure less networking environment and hence it can improve the performance of the network significantly. In this paper, it is shown that HALF gives satisfactory delivery ratio and latency under almost all conditions and different network scenarios when compared to the other existing DTN routing protocols.
