About this Textbook

This textbook reviews the theory, applications, and latest breakthroughs in Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs). Presenting a specific focus on Opportunistic Mobile Networks (OMNs), the text considers the influence of human aspects, and examines emerging forms of inter-node cooperation. Features: contains review terms and exercises in each chapter, with the solutions and source code available at an associated website; introduces the fundamentals of DTNs, covering OMNs, PSNs, and MOONs; describes the ONE simulator, explaining how to set up a simulation project; provides detailed insights into the development and testing of protocols, together with a set of best practices for increased productivity and optimized performance; examines human aspects in the context of communication networks, from human-centric applications to the impact of emotion on human-network interplay; proposes various schemes for inter-node cooperation in DTNs/OMNs; presents a detailed discussion on aspects of heterogeneity in DTNs.

Reviews

An excellent resource for both students and researchers interested in mobile opportunistic networking. A well balanced mix of theoretical and practical aspects.

I've been working on opportunistic networking since a friend was caught up in a disaster zone after a tsunami and couldn't use his smart phone, as the net was down, yet there were many devices around the town which had wireless and could store, carry, and forward messages, but no protocols to implement this useful service. This book covers in clear and up-to-date style, the principles and practice of the main communications mechanisms to date, and offers helpful exercises and useful information on how to implement these systems in practice.
