A Review on Routing in Delay Tolerant Network

Sandeep Gupta, Abishek Mathur


DTN (Delay-Tolerant Networking) is a technique in PC system development that looks into the location, specialized matters in heterogeneous systems that may need consistent system integration. Delay-tolerant networking is possible only on the systems with colossal amounts of nearby stockpiling and internodes data transmission with respect to the expected activity. Use of DTN incorporates vehicular systems and sensor organizes in rural and rustic territories. This paper incorporates the diverse conventions, application and properties of DTN.
