EU FP6 IST-2003-507581 WINNER, D3.1 Description of identified new relay based radio network deployment, Oct 2004
In D3.1 the first concept for a WINNER radio network deployment mainly focused on relay based
concepts are proposed. Further the concept of an radio and protocol architecture is presented that takes up
the relaying approach as well as the idea of having different WINNER radio interface modes to serve
different user and usage scenarios in an optimal manner. Thereby the presented protocol concept is based
on generic and mode specific user an control plane functionalities, where the common functions for
different modes are generalised and provide a common interface towards upper layer functions/protocols.
Further some relaying concepts for urban hot area coverage including mesh networks are presented
accompanied by promising simulation results. In addition to the relaying concepts benchmarks have been
produced to allow a comparison of new concepts against today’s systems.
