To balance the tradeoff of the routing throughput in DTNs, we try to propose a new method to integrate the delivery predictability of ProPHET-Routing with our previous OOP-Routing, called OOPProPHET-Routing. Also, we have used the NS2 network simulator to verify our proposed routing method is better than before, and we have achieved a good tradeoff between the delivery ratio and the numbers of forwarding packets. In particular, when the size of buffer-queue is not enough or when the numbers of

In other case, the delivery ratio is close to Epidemic but the amounts of forwarding packets are less than one-tenth. Moreover, we vary the value of the threshold to examine the effect of adjustment.
