Abstract: The classical wireless networks based on TCP/IP protocols will provide better performance to the users when end to end connection is available. However, if the path is not available, then the TCP concept is not applicable. In such a case, Delay Tolerant Networks were applicable. DTN networks are also infrastructure-less wireless networks like Ad-hoc and Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET), where the deployment is not depended on fixed infrastructure such as base station, router for successful data transmission. Messages are delivered from a source node to a destination node via a store-carry and forward based mechanism. In this article, we investigate the performance of two DTNs routing protocols such as Epidemic as well as Binary Spray and Wait (BSNW) together with two social-based routing protocols such as SCORP and dLife conducting Opportunistic Network Environment (ONE) simulator based on average latency by varying node density of every group and buffer size. Simulation result mention that, Binary Spray and Wait routing protocol performs excellent among the considered routing protocols as well as the simulation scenarios.
