Applications running over mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) often can trade-off some delay versus reliability in case of sporadic disconnection periods. However, existing solutions for network partition usually focus on settings for which disconnection is at least as normal as connection. We propose Disconnection Tolerant Networking (DisToNet) as a transparent, routing protocol agnostic solution to support sporadic and time-limited network partitioning on battery-limited devices, at the cost of some duplicate packets. We evaluate DisToNet’s system performance experimentally on an RPi B+ platform.
