Executive Summary

In this paper, an interference-aware analytical model of IEEE 802.16j systems operating in transparent mode is described. The model can be used to determine the throughput gain that can be achieved by 802.16j relay-based systems under a max-min fairness constraint in which the difference between the data rate delivered to all subscribers is minimized. Two variants of the model are considered - one in which there is no spatial reuse and one in which there is spatial reuse. The paper finds that this variant of 802.16j system can deliver significant gains over traditional single-hop access systems: 40% in the case in which there is no spatial reuse and up to 80% when spatial reuse is realised.
