Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) has been proposed as a potential solution for this technical challenge as it is designed to offer a solution for routing in a network which is not always connected. Ad hoc network is a decentralized type of wireless network. There is no pre-existing infrastructure, like the base station to coordinate the flow of messages between the nodes. To deliver a message to a node, the shortest path to the destination node is computed. Ad hoc networks can use flooding for forwarding the data. Ad hoc routing assumes that there is an end-to-end connectivity between the nodes. However this not the case for DTNs.
