Epidemic modeling has been used to analyze many disciplines such as biology, ecology and medicine. In the last years, it also has been applied to networking paradigms such as social networks, virus spreading in Internet and lastly to opportunistic networking in mobile networks. In this paper we revise some of the facts of epidemic modeling in mobile networks and use these models to analyze the impact of adding infrastructure to sparse opportunistic mobile networks. We show how the position in which infrastructure is placed takes an important impact in the dissemination delay.
