Review Glance

As I read Mr. Tello's review about Detection and Localization of Network Blackholes , I'm truly getting interested about the topic. In the reference ( he used, network blackholes refer to places in the network where incoming traffics that silently discarded or dropped, without informing the source that the data did not reach its intended recipient.

The research about network balckholes is truly recent and very interesting. It is a good starting point for development. Maybe algorithms and methods lately developed are not yet sufficient for detection and localizing network blackholes.

The reviewer is right that it is a challenge for researchers on how to create measures regarding network blackholes. This only shows that current technology has still its limitations and holes.
