Access from EThOS:
Despite the fact that advanced physical layer techniques, such as adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), and AAS (advanced antenna systems), are incorporated into mobile WiMAX systems, the roll-out and deployment of initial mobile WiMAX networks woria wide shows that some fundamental enhancements are needed to the current cellular architecture in order to meet the demand for networks that offer capacity, uniform coverage, and symmetrical user access. Moreover, the objective of any network operator is to minimise the capital expenditure of the initial network roll-out, while at the same time preserve the current network investment so as to ensure fast network deployment. For these reasons, the concept of radio relay deployment has emerged as a very 3nomical and efficient technique to boost system capacity and coverage.
