Abstract-- As mobile and wireless technologies become
more pervasive in our society, people begin to depend on
network connectivity regardless of their location. Their
mobility, however, implies a dynamic topology where
routes to a destination cannot always be guaranteed. The
intermittent connectivity, which results from this lack
of end-to-end connection, is a dominant problem that
leads to user frustration. Existing research to provide
the mobile user with a mirage of constant connectivity
generally presents mechanisms to handle disconnections
when they occur. In contrast, the system we propose
in this paper provides ways to handle disconnections
before they occur. We present a Data Bundling System
for Intermittent Connections (DBS-IC) comprised of a
