Abstract

We consider full-duplex multi-hop forwarding in a Beyond 4G local area network. In the network, there is a high density of self-backhauling relay nodes that simultaneously act as access points towards the users, in addition to few nodes with wired backhaul. The access is framed and synchronized along the multi-hop flow, and the nodes apply time division duplexing. Interference cancelation as well as power optimization is performed within the multihop route. Simulations are carried out in a local area network consisting of multiple multi-floor buildings. The propagation channel is modelled using static pathloss, log-normal distributed random variable, or static pathloss with Rayleigh fading. The simulation results indicate that full-duplex relaying improves the network performance over half-duplex relaying, if self-interference channel attenuation is kept over 80 dB. The means of achieving tolerable self-interference levels in full-duplexing relays via physical design of the relay, and analog and digital interference cancellation are discussed.
