This paper proposes an adaptive routing protocol called ARFA for an integrated cellular and ad hoc heterogeneous network with flexible access (iCAR-FA). An iCAR-FA system offers a flexible traffic diversion mechanism that allows a mobile host to utilize the bandwidth in another cell, as such easing the congestion problem and increasing the throughput in a cellular network. Based on the presentation of the iCAR-FA physical characteristics, the paper details the design issues and operation of ARFA. Detailed numerical analysis on routing overhead, which is along with some general evaluations, has indicated the effectiveness and efficiency of the ARFA protocol
