In this paper, routing strategies for fixed two-hop cellular relaying networks are discussed in terms of area spectral efficiency. We consider symmetric and asymmetric routing in uplink and downlink. Simulation results show that relaying increases the average throughput in comparison with conventional cellular networks and the area spectral efficiency of asymmetric routing is slightly better than that of the symmetric.
