 Delay Tolerant Networking: Architecture and Applications

Kevin Fall

Intel Research Labs

About the talk:
The Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) project aims to create a networking architecture and implementation supporting interoperable communications among network nodes that may never have an available end-to-end path and may utilize different network protocol stacks.  The architecture combines store-and-forward message forwarding with a novel naming and routing approach.
In this talk I will discuss the motivations behind this work, some of the architectural highlights, and several applications for which the DTN work is being targeted.

About the speaker:
Kevin Fall, PhD, is a senior staff researcher at Intel Research in Berkeley. He is currently the chair of the Delay Tolerant Networking Research Group (part of the Internet Research Task Force - IRTF) and a co-Investigator with faculty members at UC Berkeley on the NSF-sponsored "ICT4B" project, which aims to develop information and communication technologies for developing regions of the world.   Prior to Intel, he was a co-founder of NetBoost Corporation, which
developed a hardware and software engine for packet processing.
