WiMAX (802.16e) is technically capable of offering city-wide broadband connections to a high number of mobile terminals. The technology has strong industrial support, however a number of challenges remain to be resolved. Major concerns include battery life for mobile terminals, balancing support for high velocity and high data-rate, and increasing area coverage. Relay technology is a promising approach to address these challenges. Due to limited radio resources, it is necessary to consider radio resource efficiency. This paper presents a detailed analysis of relay efficiency with and without resource sharing. To enhance spectral efficiency, a directional distributed relaying architecture is proposed for interference elimination and avoidance
