Opportunistic Mobile Networks
Opportunistic Mobile Networks (OMNs) suffers from the lack of end-to-end connectivity among nodes due to frequent network partitioning. The fundamental goal of any communication network is to have the data/packets/messages delivered to their corresponding destinations. In any network topology multiple paths may be present from a source node to a destination node. The aim is to find an optimum route (for example, least time and least cost etc.) for forwarding the messages among source-destination pairs in an opportunistic mobile network (OMN). Routing is challenging in OMN due to high degree of network partitioning. Several schemes have been proposed in the literature to achieve efficient routing in OMNs. The objective of this workshop is to give a hands-on experience on implementing existing DTNs/OMNs protocols in ONE simulator.
