Table 2 System parameters for shared relay model. The main differences between the shared relay model and the one-way relay are the number of antennas per relay, the relay transmit power, and the number of relays per sector. Since over a large network there will be approximately 3 times fewer relays for the shared model than the one-way relay model, shared relays are given 3 times the transmission power and 3 times the antennas.
