Summary: 
The effect of the hidden terminal (HT) over multi-hop cascaded wireless networks with the omni-directional full-duplex relays will cause data collision. We allocate the frequency band among different hops in an orthogonal way based on link grouping strategy to avoid this HT problem. In order to maximize the achievable rate, an optimal frequency allocation scheme is proposed by boundary alignment. Performance analyses are provided and further validated by the simulation results.
