Up to now, OMNET++ and the INET and INETMANET frameworks do not include an opportunistic routing protocol implementation. A careful examination reveals that there are three very distinctive stages in the decision procedure of every opportunistic routing protocol. SAORS takes advantage of this observation and incorporates it in the system architecture. It is based on the DYMO ad-hoc routing protocol. SAORS provides the necessary functions for the development of opportunistic schemes such as access to the node's routing table, a database for storing the Delay-Tolerant messages, as well as the ad-hoc functionality accomplished by DYMO. It is using by default a beacon mechanism
to perform the social network discovery. Beacons contain the ID of the transmitting node and its most important social information (as defined by the routing protocol).
