In this article, the authors outline some key benefits that stem from the use of mechanical relaying within or across the cells in future wireless mobile networks. The authors have argued that, when information messages that can be stored are elastic enough and subsequently carried by mobile nodes, before relayed to other terminals or the BS at a later time, interference and energy consumption levels can be dramatically decreased during network operation due to the locality of the transmissions. In addition, mechanical relaying allows for innovative resource-management techniques to be deployed in the network, such as providing load balancing or switching-off BSs with low levels of utilization. To fully understand the issues regarding mechanical relaying, it is necessary to examine in a more detailed manner the required architectural changes together with the implementation aspects of integrating the mechanical relaying paradigm with the current and emerging mobile networks such as LTE advanced. This will be part of our future line of enquiry.
