We evaluate the costs in the deployment of a 4G relay-assisted network in the 2.6GHz band following a technoeconomic methodology that departs fromcell dimensioning based on spectral efficiency and outage capacity requirements. Different decodeand- forward relaying protocols are considered in the analysis, assuming a certain traffic load evolution over a period of ten years, different geotypes, and a progressive deployment of base stations and relay stations. Results show significant benefits for operators as well as reduction in the total radiated power.
