The introduction of intelligent devices with short range wireless communication techniques has motivated the development of Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) during the last few years. However, traditional end-to-end based routing algorithms designed for MANETs are not much robust in the challenged networks suffering from frequent disturbance, less network density and limited device capability. Such challenge requires the combination use of network technologies. Since DTNs has been used for different applications with a large number of proposed routing algorithms. This paper describes the vital features of communication model aimed to enhance the protection of energy consumed assets against man-made attacks (terrorism) or natural disasters. The model is reviewed based on a hybrid network architecture, which combines the advantages of different wireless technologies, such as Delay Tolerant Networking and Mobile Ad-hoc Networks. The solution includes the definition of an extended routing protocol which is considered on account of the different networking technologies that already exist.
