dc.description.abstract Next generation mobile communication systems will operate at high system bandwidths of up to 100MHz and at carrier frequencies beyond 2GHz to provide peak data rates of up to 1Gbit/s with similar average revenues per user as todays cellular networks. High bit rates should be available to all users in a cell which is challenging due to the unfavorable propagation conditions in these bands. In-band relays are a seen as a promising technology for cellular networks to extend the high bit rate coverage and to enable cost efficient network deployments. The research in this thesis has contributed to the development of the relaying concept within the European research project WINNER. WINNER has designed a next generation radio system concept based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) with the inclusion of relays as one of the major innovations. In our work we have identified the radio resource management as the most important function to exploit the potential benefits of relay based deployments. We develop a flexible radio resource management framework that adapts to a wide range of deployments, whereas our main focus is on metropolitan area deployments. Here we propose to utilize a dynamic resource assignment based on soft frequency reuse. Further, we propose a practical way to integrate cooperative relaying in a relay network. This concept allows the cooperation of multiple radio access points within a relay enhanced cell with low overhead and small delays. In system simulations we compare the performance of relay deployments to base station only deployments in a metropolitan area network. Our results show that relay deployments are cost efficient and they increase both the network throughput as well as the high bit rate coverage of the network. Further, they show that our proposed soft frequency reuse scheme outperforms competing interference coordination schemes in the studied metropolitan area scenario. Even though the results have been obtained for WINNER system parameters, the conclusions can also be applied to OFDMA based systems such as 3GPP Long Term Evolution and WiMAX. en
