Abstract

Given peoples increasing dependence on communication networks, vulnerabilities of communication networks and the Internet can significantly impact our lives. These networks and services are susceptible to accidents or natural disasters that can disrupt service and compromised the network infrastructure. In the face of these disasters, the need for greater resilience for the Internet has attracted the attention of researchers. In this work, we propose an architecture that allows a disconnected smart-phone in a disaster situation to utilize the Internet connections of neighboring smart-phones. We evaluate the performance of our protocol by comparing it with the Concurrent Multipath Transfer SCTP (CMT-SCTP), and the results show that our protocol can achieve similar or better performance.
