Abstract

A hybrid cellular and ad hoc network for high data rate wireless access is considered. An air-interface which uses TDD in combination with time division multiple access (TDMA) is assumed. Interference and resource reuse are important issues in hybrid networks. For this purpose analytical models for the reuse efficiency and a capacity bound of such a network are developed. These models are based on an exclusion range concept which is introduced to keep interference at an acceptable level. It is found that with this interference limiting measure, multi hop networks can benefit from a multi hop reuse gain compared to single hop networks. However, it is further found that this gain does not significantly increase for more than 5 hops. Furthermore, the pre-requisite for being able to exploit the multi hop reuse gain is a certain TS granularity. It was observed that with an increasing number of TS per frame, the mean and the variance of the number of supported hops increased almost linearly.
