Cost/Performance Trade-offs of "Two-Layers" Ad Hoc Multihop Cellular Access Systems
2004 (English)In: Proceedings of the fourth Scandinavian Workshop on Wireless Ad-hoc Networks, 2004Conference paper (Refereed)
Ad Hoc multihop cellular access is considered tobe a strong candidate for the next generation of public phonesystems. In this paper, we present a novel approach for solving the dimensioning problem of an ad hoc system capable of two hopstransmissions. In this respect, is presented and analyzed a method for comparing the expenditure levels, for deploying andrunning a cellular network, implemented through a multihoppingsystem or through a standard cellular solution selected as reference. In particular, we describe the conditions in which the proposed multihopping solution is feasible, and quantify the performance/cost trade-offs that are achievable. Numerical results show that the spectral efficiency of currently deployed single hop systems can almost be doubled, if the user terminals are capable of multihopping and the cell planning is performed so that a critical mass of user per cell can be guaranteed.
