Maintaining communications across disconnected networks can be a troubling issue, particularly since existing solutions are highly theoretical or have unrealistic hardware requirements. As a result, CANDICE was designed with the aim of allowing extensible accessible facilitation of internet connections in environments not suited to reliable communications – particularly hostile zones. Unfortunately, current web development trends (including a heavier emphasis on user interaction and asynchronous data transfer) ensure that less useful content is accessible without an uninterrupted internet connection. By evaluating the operation of CANDICE in retrieving popular websites, types of content that are well-suited to transmission over disrupted networks can be determined.
