The Interlinked Homes Network (IHN) has been proposed as a means of mitigating the deleterious consequences associated with the low birthrate and rapidly aging society. The IHN employs store and forward at every node with door-to-door linking between neighboring homes, and provides the flooding and source routings. At each node, packet-buffer memories are allocated to every outgoing link. Validity of this policy is considered in terms of the probability of loss. We clarify the mechanism determining the probability of loss between two nodes and present conditions for invariant probability of loss in the IHN. All these results are based on arc-disjoint paths.
