Abstract
(English)
Opportunistic networks are one of the most interesting extensions of the legacy Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) concept. Legacy MANETs are composed by mobile nodes that collaboratively setup a network plane by running a given routing protocol. Therefore, the – sometimes implicit – assumption behind MANETs is that the network is well connected, and nodes’ disconnection is an exception to deal with. Most notably, if the destination of a given message is not connected to the network when the message is generated, then that message is dropped after a short time (i.e., the destination is assumed not to exist). Opportunistic networks are mobile wireless networks in which the presence of a “continuous” path between a sender and a destination is not assumed. Sender and destination nodesmay never be connected to the network at the same time.
