DABBER: Data reAchaBility BasEd Routing for Named-data Networking Wireless Environments

The European UMOBILE project is working on methods to extend NDN towards opportunistic wireless networks. In this context, COPELABS has been implementing an NFD extension, called NDN-OPP, which supports NDN multi-hop wireless communication: NDN-OPP V1.0 for Android does broadcast of Interest packets over a Wi-Fi direct network. 
In order to reduce resource consumption in a NDN multi-hop wireless networks, COPELABS, SENCEPTION and ATHENA have created the DABBER routing protocol, which allows selective forwarding of Interest packets based on the local announcement of name prefixes + node awareness about the properties of neighbour nodes (centrality and availability). DABBER aims to operate on a point-to-point wireless network (e.g. Wi-Fi direct, DTN) as well as on a broadcast network (e.g. ah-hoc Wi-Fi).
DABBER was submitted to IRTF, and will be presented in the ICNRG meeting in London (Mar 17th - Mar 23rd).
