    Applications involving the dissemination of information directly relevant to humans (e.g., service advertising, news spreading, environmental alerts) often rely on publish-subscribe, in which the network delivers a published message only to the nodes whose subscribed interests match it. In principle, publish- subscribe is particularly useful in mobile environments, since it minimizes the coupling ... View full abstract»

  • A content-centric framework for effective data dissemination in opportunistic networks

    In this paper, we address the challenges of content transfer in opportunistic networks, and propose techniques to better facilitate data dissemination based on the characteristics of the content. To investigate this problem from its origins, we propose three message scheduling algorithms: Sequential Forwarding (SF), Full Interleaving (FI), and Block-based Interleaving (BI). Each algorithm is embed... View full abstract»

  • Fixed point opportunistic routing in delay tolerant networks

    We propose in this work a single copy and multi-hop opportunistic routing scheme for sparse delay tolerant networks (DTNs). The scheme uses as only input the estimates of the average inter-contact times between the nodes in the network. Defined as the fixed point of a recursive process, it aims at minimizing delivery time in case of independent exponential pairwise inter-contacts. The two properti... View full abstract»

  • (p,q)-Epidemic routing for sparsely populated mobile ad hoc networks

    This paper considers (p, q )-Epidemic Routing, a class of store-carry-forward routing schemes, for sparsely populated mobile ad hoc networks. Our forwarding scheme includes Two-Hop Forwarding and the conventional Epidemic Routing as special cases. In such forwarding schemes, the original packet is copied many times and its packet copies spread over the network. Therefore those packet copies should... View full abstract»

    Epidemic routing has been proposed to reduce the data transmission delay in disruption tolerant wireless networks, in which data can be replicated along multiple opportunistic paths as different nodes move within each other's communication range. With the advent of network coding, it is intuitive that data can not only be replicated, but also coded, when the transmission opportunity arises. Howeve... View full abstract»

    While extensive studies have been carried out in the past several years for many sensor applications, the main approach for sensor networking cannot be applied to the sceonarios with extremely low and intermittent connectivity, dubbed the Delay/Fault-Tolerant Mobile Sensor Network (DFT-MSN). Without end-to-end connections due to sparse network density and sensor node mobility, routing in DFT-MSN b... View full abstract»

  • A DTN approach to satellite communications

    Satellite communications pose serious challenges to transport layer performance, mainly because of long propagation delays (especially in geosynchronous systems) and the possi ble presence of random errors on the satellite link. Solutions that cope with these impairments usually rely upon either the adoption of enhanced versions of transport protocols, or the insertion of intermediate agents, like... View full abstract»

    We review the rationale behind the current design of the Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN) Architecture and highlight some remaining open issues. Its evolution, from a focus on deep space to a broader class of heterogeneous networks that may suffer disruptions, affected design decisions spanning naming and addressing, message formats, data encoding methods, routing, congestion management ...
