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.
