The main challenge in DTNs is how to deal with path uncertainty in achieving a reliable routing scheme. All Erasure coding based routing algorithms make the assumption that the underlying path probabilities are known previously and remain constant, which is unpractical. On the other hand, the overall behavior of path probability tends to be stable with the increasing number of paths, which can be used to increase the stability of Erasure coding based schemes. Bearing this in mind, we present Inter-Coding: Inter-Coding is designed to fully combine the reliability of erasure coding, and the stability of interleaving to cope with uncertainties. We evaluate our approach in terms of delivery ratio under different level of uncertainty as well as different interleaving policy, and validate that Inter-Coding offers reliable and stable performance even the path uncertainty and dynamic is high.
