  • Patent number: 9031596
    Abstract: The present document describes a distributed communication arrangement, wherein a radio access network of a wireless telecommunication system provides a terminal device with two logical communication connections. Both uplink and downlink of a first logical connection are routed between a base station and the terminal device through a relay node. Uplink of a second logical connection is also routed between the base station and the terminal device through the relay node. Downlink of the second logical connection is, however, transmitted directly from the base station to the terminal device. Such an arrangement is used for cooperative communication purposes.
