The capacity of ad hoc network is constrained by the multihop relay traffic. We investigate a hybrid wireless network with base stations distributed in an ad hoc network in order to localize the ad hoc traffic. We propose to organize the ad hoc traffic based on the adjacency of each node itself instead of the base station, and propose an L-maximum-hop routing strategy in order to obtain improved spectrum efficiency. The throughput capacity of the resulting hybrid wireless network is studied. The paper also demonstrates that this type of hybrid wireless network is scalable.
