It is known that the achievable data rate per user can be increased when relays are deployed in wireless networks. However, the drawback of this solution is that some of the network's resources should be allocated to the relays. In this paper, we consider a two-tier network in which all users send or receive data in two hops. By applying vector quantization, we compute the relays' locations to improve network's average transmission rate. These locations are also computed analytically when the… CONTINUE READING
