Implications of Fairness Criteria on the Techno-Economic Viability of Relaying Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The introduction of relaying techniques into cellular networks is expected to reduce the total infrastructure cost, especially when coverage extension is sought. With the advent of networks such as LTE, guaranteeing high data-rate coverage may become a challenge even for incumbent operators which nowadays provide full coverage for voice service. However it is not straightforward that operators will be able (or want) to guarantee coverage for the high data-rates. In this paper, the authors study how the techno-economic viability of the relaying solution depends on the type of service to be provided by the operator.
