An intermittently connected mobile network means that there does not exist a complete path from the source to the destination. It is also called as wireless networks. These networks are categorized in delay tolerant networks. Wildlife tracking sensor networks, military networks, Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs), inter-planetary network and under water networks are the application of delay tolerant networks. To deal with such networks researchers have suggested to use spray and wait routing protocol that \"Sprays\" a number of copies into the network, and then \"Waits\" till one of these nodes meets the destination.
