Improved Spray and Wait Protocol for DTN Networks

Authors(3) :-Deepa Maywad, Prof. Chetan Agrawal, Prof. Sanjay Kumar Pal

Current wireless network has provided a wide range of application making it possible to interconnect devices and system successfully all around the world. The widespread availability of wireless devices and ubiquitous access to various services via wireless network rapidly makes it as indispensable part of our life. But there is some wireless network application where the connectivity between nodes has intermittent property due to challenged working environment. This paper proposes an improved spray and wait routing (ISnW) scheme. It performs better on the basis of delivery probability and overhead ratio.
