Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) serviceand protocol stack and presents an implementation of it on theAndroid platform that is called "Bytewalla". It allows the use ofAndroid phones for the physical transport of data betweennetwork nodes in areas where there are no other links available, orwhere existing links need to be avoided for security reasons or incase the Internet is shut down by a government authority like ithappened in some Arab countries during the spring of 2011.The implementation of a store and forward messaging applicationand a Sentinel Surveillance health-care application (SSA) thatruns on top of Bytewalla are presented together with a few usagescenarios. Our conclusion is that the integration of DTN links inthe general IP-network architecture on mobile phone platform isfeasible and will make it easier to integrate DTN applications intocommunication-challenged areas. To our knowledge ourimplementation of the bundle protocol is the first on the Androidplatform.
