An Efficient Social Characteristics Based Opportunistic Routing Protocol

Disruption Tolerant Networks (DTNs) consist of mobile devices that contact each other opportunistically. Due to the low node density, unpredictable node mobility, noise, sparsity of nodes and lack of global network information only intermittent network connectivity exists in DTNs makes difficulty maintaining end-to-end communication links. Social-aware Content-based Opportunistic Routing Protocol, (SCORP), is proposed to support DTNs that considers the users social interaction and their interests to improve data delivery in urban area network through simulations using synthetic mobility and human traces scenarios.
