Delay Tolerant network on Android Phones
Team Bytewalla, a group of international master students at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), developed an open source software for supporting Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) on Android phones. This software seamlessly integrates postfix mailing systems with the existing email systems, by which emails can be sent and received from remote places without Internet facility.
Bytewalla offers a solution with an affordable cost to the limited connectivity issue in rural areas without Internet infrastructure. The key idea is to allow people commuting between the city and villages without Internet infrastructure to carry data in their Android phones. After they arrive at the city or village, the data will be transmitted to the destination server.
The telecom operators in the rural areas can provide Delay Tolerant Network by using the Bytewalla application software. Hospitals, schools, companies, and individuals in rural areas will be able get the benefits of information technology by this service.
The Bytewalla software has a user friendly graphical user interface, which offers ordinary and technical users an advanced control.
