Abstract: Delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) are basically opportunistic networks and uses store-carry-and-forward switching for message forwarding. Performance of DTNs can be improved by placing stationary nodes, called throw boxes which increases the contact opportunities among nodes. Throw box is viewed as relaying node and the message delivery is enhanced by spreading as many messages as possible. Increasing the contact opportunities in throw box based DTN model depends on the deployment of throw boxes in suitable places. The objective of this paper is to identify optimal deployment locations of the throw boxes with a pre-specified transmission range, and to maximize the coverage of all the throw boxes in order to increase average delivery and to reduce the average delay among all the nodes in the network. We use Non-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm–II for optimizing the deployment of throw boxes in DTN. The simulation results are analyzed for better strategy in deploying throw boxes and to improve the performance of throw box-augmented DTNs.
