An evolved cellular system architecture incorporating relay stations

  title={An evolved cellular system architecture incorporating relay stations},
  author={Jerry Sydir and Rakesh Taori},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
Shrinking cell sizes, primarily a result of keeping up with the increasing demand for higher data rates, are stretching thin the notion of our traditional cellular system architecture. More and more base stations are serving smaller and smaller areas (cells) which in effect is driving up deployment costs. The option of deploying relay stations is increasingly beginning to look like a solution to the problem of providing a cost-effective way to extend the coverage and capacity in a cellular… CONTINUE READING
