Spotting Opportunity today and recognizing the same is the vision of the expert. The wirelesscommunication network regime is one such environment that offers such a platform for many workingscientific, academic and engineering experts. Henceforth, “Opportunistic-network” is a recent evolutionof the above said phenomena in the wireless community. They function by spontaneous cooperation &coordination giving birth to a special type network called wireless-mobile-adhoc-network (W-MAN). Assaid, these networks are formed instantaneously in a random manner – breaking the conventionalmathematically evolved algorithms’, and provided the quintessential of a network(s) that exist inneighbourhood(s) or approachable limits. Is more of situational based, exploited for specialized purposeor advantage, which mimics all the characteristic of a well evolved network. Such networks, lack an endto-end path, contact, cooperation and coordination; which is mainly opportunity based, and break oreven disintegrate soon after discovery, thus the challenge lay in integration, construction and probablesustenance or even mid-way reconstruction till purpose. One can cite many realistic scenarios fitting tothis situation. For example, wildlife tracking sensor networks, military networks, vehicular ad hocnetworks to mention a few. To transmit information under such circumstances/scenarios researchers haveproposed various efficient forwarding (single copy), replication routing and controlled based schemes. Inthis paper, we propose to explore, investigate and analyze most of the schemes [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] andpresent the findings of the said scheme by consolidating critical parameters and issues and towards theend of this paper, algorithms, possible solutions to deal with such complex and dynamic situationsthrough W-MAN scheme suggested by us.
