Summary The delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) are emerging research topics that have attracted keen research efforts from both academia and industry. Different from the traditional communication networks, DTNs consider an extreme network condition where a complete end-to-end path between the data source and destination may not exist, and the network is subject to dynamic node connections and unstable topologies. With the above features, DTNs find broad applications in the situations where legacynetworks cannot work effectively, such as data communications in rural areas, where stable communications infrastructure is not available or costly, and crucial areas, e.g., disaster rescue and battlefield communications. To summarize, the DTNs, as an important technology complementary to traditional networkings, can be widely applied to national welfare and the people’s livelihood.
