Next generation mobile radio networks of IMT-Advanced systems family will offer ubiquitous broadband high area coverage, at up to 1GBit/s in cities and 100MBit/s in rural areas and QoS support in terms of throughput and low delay. Candidate technologies like 3GPP-LTE, WiMAX, as well as the WINNER system design are based on OFDMA transmission for flexible radio resource allocation, scalable and adaptable to both short range and wide area scenarios. Multi-hop relaying is part of all system concepts, in order to cover huge radio cell areas with a reduced number of base stations.
