Data Access In Disruption Tolerant Networks Using Cooperative Caching

M. Arshi, N. Deepak


Disruption tolerant networks (DTNs) consist of mobile devices that call each other opportunistically.Due to the low node density and impulsive nodemobility, only broken network connectivity exists in DTNs, and the ensuing obscurity of maintaining end-to end communication links makes it obligatory to use “carry and-forward” methods for data transmission. Models ofsuch networks consist of groups of individuals moving in adversity mending areas, military battlefields, or urbansensing applications. In such networks, node mobilityis subjugated to let mobile nodes take data as communicate and forward data opportunistically when contacting others. The input difficulty is, consequently, how to decide the suitable communicate assortment plan.
