The latest LTE-Advanced standard introduces fixed relays to reduce the number of base stations (substantially reducing costs) and improve service quality. The relay concept is extended to include users' devices as mobile relays, to further strengthen these benefits. The impact of mobile relays strongly depends on the environment (number of users, their locations and mobility). We investigate a a novel combination of rigorous probability theory and simulation-based systems engineering to study the benefits of this new concept for network operators.
