Abstract

Multi-hop cellular networks (MCNs) reduce the transmit power and improve the system performance. Recently, several research studies have been conducted on MCNs. The mobile relay selection scheme is a rising issue in the design of MCNs that achieves these advantages. The conventional opportunistic relaying (OR) is performed on the single factor for maximum signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR). In this paper, a comprehensive OR scheme based on Bi-Target is proposed to improve the system throughput and reduce the relay handover by constraining the amount of required bandwidth and SINR. Moreover, the proposed algorithm captures the variability and the mobility that makes it more suitable for dynamic real scenarios. Numerical and simulation results show the superiority of the proposed algorithm in both enhancing the overall performance and reducing the handover.
