Detail characterization of paths in pocket switched networks
Pocket Switched Networking (PSN) is a new communication paradigm between mobile devices. It takes advantage of every local communication opportunity, and the physical mobility of the devices, in order to transport data. In this work, we followed an experimental approach, using real measurement of human mobility patter, to study the characteristics of forwarding paths found in a PSN environment. We describe for the first time the waiting time statistics of delay-optimal paths, and draw some of their consequences on the analysis of a forwarding algorithm. Keywords Pocket Switched Network, Network measurement, human mobility, wireless Networking.
