IBR-DTN: A lightweight, modular and highly portable Bundle Protocol implementation

Sebastian Schildt, Johannes Morgenroth, Wolf-Bastian Pöttner, Lars Wolf


In this paper we present IBR-DTN, a lightweight, modular and portable Bundle Protocol implementation and DTN daemon. IBR-DTN is especially suited for embedded platforms, which allows to leverage the benefits of a fully compliant Bundle Protocol daemon in cost sensitive distributed sensing applications. We line out IBR-DTN's extensible software architecture and introduce the modules included in the standard IBR-DTN distribution.
To give an impression of the performance that can be expected when using IBR-DTN, we perform a series of benchmarks and compare the outcome with DTN2 performance, the reference implementation of the Bundle Protocol.
