    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.1, pp. 1303-1323, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.039697

    Abstract Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) have the major problem of message delay in the network due to a lack of end-to-end connectivity between the nodes, especially when the nodes are mobile. The nodes in DTNs have limited buffer storage for storing delayed messages. This instantaneous sharing of data creates a low buffer/shortage problem. Consequently, buffer congestion would occur and there would be no more space available in the buffer for the upcoming messages. To address this problem a buffer management policy is proposed named “A Novel and Proficient Buffer Management Technique (NPBMT) for the Internet of Vehicle-Based DTNs”. NPBMT combines appropriate-size… More >

    A Dynamic Resource-Aware Routing Protocol in Resource-Constrained Opportunistic Networks

    Aref Hassan Kurd Ali1,*, Halikul Lenando1, Slim Chaoui2,3, Mohamad Alrfaay1,4, Medhat A. Tawfeek5,6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 4147-4167, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.020659

    Abstract Recently, Opportunistic Networks (OppNets) are considered to be one of the most attractive developments of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks that have arisen thanks to the development of intelligent devices. OppNets are characterized by a rough and dynamic topology as well as unpredictable contacts and contact times. Data is forwarded and stored in intermediate nodes until the next opportunity occurs. Therefore, achieving a high delivery ratio in OppNets is a challenging issue. It is imperative that any routing protocol use network resources, as far as they are available, in order to achieve higher network performance. In this article, we introduce the… More >

    An Application-Oriented Buffer Management Strategy in Opportunistic Networks

    Meihua Liu1, Xinchen Zhang2,*, Shuangkui Ge3, Xiaoli Chen1, Jianbin Wu2, Mao Tian1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.60, No.2, pp. 559-574, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.04843

    Abstract In Opportunistic networks (ONs), buffer management is critical to improve the message exchanging efficiency due to the limited storage space and transmission bandwidth at the wireless edge. Current solutions make message scheduling and drop policy based on assumptions that messages can always been forwarded in a single contact, and all node pairs have the same contact rates. However, such ideal assumptions are invalid for realistic mobility traces of hand-held. Recent studies show that the single contact duration is limited and the mobility of nodes is heterogeneous in reality. In this paper, a buffer management strategy based on contact duration and… More >
