    We consider multi-hop forwarding in a Beyond 4G local area network, where in addition to nodes with wired backhaul, there is a high density of self-backhauling relay nodes acting simultaneously as access points towards users. The nodes apply Time Division Duplexing, access is framed and synchronized along a multi-hop flow, and there is a corresponding reuse factor for active hops along a multihop route. Interference cancelation, as well as power and resource optimization, is performed within along a route. Simulations are performed in a local area network consisting of multiple multi-floor buildings. Multi-hop self-backhauling is found to significantly improve the coverage of high data rates in the system.
