Investigations of Resource Allocation Schemes Between Multi-Hop Backhaul Network and Access Network
In this paper, the trade-off on resource allocation between multi-hop backhaul and access is investigated. Multi-hop, treated as a special case of mesh, is very useful in non-contention based network. The authors assume in-band relay backhaul and access share the same resource. Based on calculation and simulation, the relationship among resource allocation, cell coverage and channel status is revealed under two relay schemes. Wireless multi-hop networks have attracted lots of attentions in recent years as the next evolutionary step for wireless data networks. It is more feasible and effective than pure mesh structure, especially in non-contention based wireless network.
