Due to the increased capabilities of mobile devices and through wireless opportunistic contacts, users can experience new ways to share and retrieve content anywhere and anytime, even in the presence of link intermittency. Due to the significant number of available routing solutions, it is difficult to understand which one has the best performance, since all of them follow a different evaluation method. This paper proposes an assessment model, based on a new taxonomy, which comprises an evaluation guideline with performance metrics and experimental setup to aid designers in evaluating solutions through fair comparisons. Simulation results based on the proposed model revisit the performance results published by Epidemic, PROPHET, and BubbleRap, showing how they perform under the same set of metrics and scenario.
