This paper proposes a Multi-hop Radio Access Cellular (MRAC) scheme for achieving both highspeed/high-capacity and good area coverage in fourth generation mobile communications systems. In this scheme, we assume two kinds of hop stations, one is a dedicated repeater station installed at a good propagation location such as a rooftop, and the other is a user terminal that temporarily experiences good propagation conditions. For both cases, the path diversity effect can be obtained between single… CONTINUE READING
