End-to-end transport protocols perform poorly in mobile environments, primarily due to the frequent route breaks induced by node mobility. We present a framework for hop-byhop transport protocols and propose a new reliable transport protocol: SaFT (Store-and-Forward Transport). We evaluate its performance in mobile ad hoc networks vis-a-vis TCP. Overall, SaFT achieves up to 3 times faster delivery of messages in such networks. We conclude that store-andforward protocols are suited well todoi:10.1109/mobhoc.2006.278588 dblp:conf/mass/HeimlicherBMP06 fatcat:gca2x66dyvazzc4zj4riinelny
