“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.
