We investigated performance improvement in a cellular system by introducing direct communication between terminals. Previous research has indicated that direct communication efficiently uses channels; however, this is not always so. We studied two factors that affect how much efficiency improves. One is the distribution of terminals. We defined some typical distributions with localization of terminals and analyzed how the difference between the distributions affected the performance improvement by direct communication. Another factor is the mobility of terminals, because mobility shortens the length of time during which terminals are directly connected. We analyzed how mobility affected performance improvement by direct communication. For the analyses, we used some theoretical techniques.
