A Survey of Factors Influencing Network Lifetime in Delay Tolerant Network


To what extend a wireless communication gadget can chip away at a single charge of a rechargeable battery obtains the importance. Capacity-wise, disposable batteries are superior to the rechargeable batteries. There are numerous ways utilized with which the battery life can be augmented. At the same time, identifying the cause of battery energy utilization boosts the researchers to design and develop protocols, methods and techniques to minimize the consumption of energy by which lifetime of the network could be extended. This paper investigates the sources and factors that lessen the network lifetime.The scope ofthis paper has been narrowed down toDelayTolerantNetwork since this field of research has attracted a great deal of attention by the researchers mostly due to its challenging characteristic qualities. No promising connectivity, high mobility, indefinite node mobility patterns, energy and storage exhaustion comprise a few of the potential issues that one may confront in a DTN environment which in turn eat-off bandwidth and energy for the data delivery from the Source to the Destination.
