Abstract [en]

Previous studies have shown that multihop techniques  can improve the capacity/coverage of a hybrid cellular  system, but the economic gain is still an open question. An  infrastructure cost analysis is performed in this paper on two  hybrid cellular architectures: one using terminals as relays and  one using fixed relays.

For the first architecture we show numerical examples in which  the infrastructure cost is 20% to 40% higher when multihopping  is not used. The size of the gain depends on the density of relaying  terminals. For the second architecture the cost ratio between  deploying a new macro base station and deploying a wireless  relay. In the selected examples, the infrastructure cost is 25%  to 100% higher when multihopp is not used, for a cost ratio  between a macro base station and a relay varying from 20 to 34.
