Wireless multihop network is currently attracting much attention as a new wireless broadband access technology due to numerous benefits. This work proposes a power control scheme for WiMAX multihop relay system. In contrast to existing power control and optimization approaches, our proposed method uses an adaptive Channel Quality Measurement for a relay station to reduce interferences to other mobile station (MS) or relay station (RS) within the same cell and hence increase the number of hops per link and consequently maximize the spatial reuse. The proposed power control is applied to a new dynamic HARQ algorithm for adaptive channel quality enhancement. Simulation results have indicated that the proposed approach achieves superior BER/PER performance enhancement in comparison to previous related works.
