How Do You Make Network That Changes Shape? A network that is “alive”, “evolve” and form according to the traffic scenarios.
A network that “always get supported” from different networks.

“Opportunistic Networking (Store-Carry-Forward)” Mobile Ad-Hoc networks, intermittently connected and suitable for delay tolerant applications. Opportunistic networks are human-centric because they opportunistically follow the way humans come into contact. Mobility models based on social behavior represent an important tool for testing the performance of opportunistic systems.
