In this paper, we propose a multihop medium access control (mMAC) scheme for time division duplexing-code division multiple access (TDD-CDMA) cellular networks with two-hop relay architecture to support packet data transmission. The proposed mMAC is based on joint CDMA/PRMA (packet reservation multiple access) protocol and it includes BCH code selection, power control and multihop relaying. Simulation results reveal that cellular networks with two-hop relay architecture with the proposed mMAC scheme can substantially provide a good performance as well as larger cell coverage as compared to conventional TDD-CDMA single-hop cellular networks.
