In our previous work, we proposed a method of Enhanced Message Suppression Controller (EMSC) considering delayed acknowledgment for vehicular Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN). In this paper, we evaluate the performance of our proposed method for message suppression in Vehicular-DTN. The simulation platform based on Scenargie simulator has been developed in order to evaluate the impact of persist timer to control the delayed acknowledgment. We consider 802.11p standard and send bundle messages in a Manhattan grid scenario. From the simulation results, we observed that our proposed method can increase efficiency with less network resource consumption and higher packet delivery ratio.
