This paper proposes a multi-hop wireless link system for radio access networks (RANs) of new generation mobile communication systems. The performance of the multi-hop wireless link system is evaluated from the viewpoints of total output power, co-frequency interference characteristics, and the system frequency bandwidth based on a comparison with that of the single-hop wireless link system, which is currently used as a RAN. The proposed system is effective in realizing an enormous approach link capacity from both the total output power and the co-frequency interference viewpoints. From the system frequency bandwidth viewpoint, the optimum number of relays in the multi-hop connection is determined to be three hops in a line-of-sight propagation environment in order to minimize the frequency bandwidth for transferring traffic. We conclude that the multi-hop wireless link system is suitable for new generation mobile communication systems.
