In this paper we discuss the architecture of MStack, a data-centric communications stack specifically designed for mobile intermittent networking environments. MStack contains native support for delay tolerant connections, it is resilient to disconnections, and solves other problems associated with mobile devices. The architecture and its main protocols are discussed, together with some examples of the programming interface provided to applications. Experimental results illustrate the performance in intermittent connectivity conditions.
