On Backhauling of Relay Enhanced Networks in LTE-Advanced

By Omer Bulakci

Abstract

Relaying is considered a promising cost-efficient solution in 3GPP LTE-Advanced for coverage extension and throughput enhancement. The compact physical characteristics and low power requirements of the relay nodes offer more flexible deployment options than traditional macro evolved Node Bs. This paper provides an overview of general relaying concepts and presents the relay deployment within the LTE-Advanced framework. Furthermore, the impact of relay backhauling on envisioned relaying gains is discussed and the methods to improve the performance of the backhauling are included.Comment: This work was presented as a part of Licentiate Seminar, Department of Communications and Networking, Aalto University, 2010. 4 pages.
