Capacity and Coverage are the two major concerns for the wireless operators to deploy cellular networks. This paper investigates the uplink capacity and coverage of relay-assisted UMTS network when multiuser detection techniques are employed at both macrocell base station (BS) and relay station (RS). A hierarchical geometric system model is used where the fixed relay stations are deployed within the macrocell. We are particularly interested in the cases where macro BSs and RSs have different...[Show more]
