    Information-centric Routing for Opportunistic Wireless Networks
                      draft-mendes-icnrg-dabber-05

Abstract

   This draft describes the Data reAchaBility BasEd Routing (DABBER)
   protocol.  DABBER aims to provide a name-based routing solution to
   support the operation of Information-centric Networking frameworks in
   opportunistic wireless networks.  By "opportunistic wireless
   networks" it is meant multi-hop wireless networks where finding an
   end-to-end path between any pair of nodes at any moment in time may
   be a challenge.  The goal is to assist in better defining
   opportunities for the transmission of Interest packets in a store-
   carry-and-forward manner, based on a proactive approach.  The
   document describes how to integrate DABBER in a networking node that
   implements some ICN approach, such as Named-Data Networking (NDN) or
   Content Centric Networking (CCN), along with the specification of the
   proactive approach based on the dissemination of name-prefix
   information.
