Delay and/or Disruption-Tolerant Networking (DTN) are a novel communication prototype that can span across multiple networks and deal with unpredicted conditions in the Internet model. Delay-Tolerant Networks (DTNs) are partitioned wireless ad hoc networks with intermittent connectivity. Additional terminology in this family of dynamic networks includes disruption-tolerant networks, intermittently connected networks, and opportunistic networks. Routing of the packets in DTN is based on store-carry- and forward paradigm. In this paper, the authors study and analyze performance of well-known prophet and spray and wait routing protocol, under different human mobility models such as Truncated Levy Walk mobility model (TLW), Self-similar Least Action Walk (SLAW) and Random Way Point (RWP) model.
