ODMA is a multi-hop relaying routing protocol, the use of which has been investigated in conventional cellular scenarios. This paper compares the performance of ODMA with direct transmission for cases where links maybe required directly to other nodes, as well as to a controlling (back-bone) node. For an interference-limited system, it is shown that whereas the topology is not supportable by a conventional (single-hop) system, a relayed system is able to provide service. A new admission control and routing algorithm based on receiver interference is presented which is shown to further enhance performance.
