The SOPRANO project involves a novel adaptive and scalable wireless network architecture utilizing a mixture of cellular and multihop packet radio system topologies with the potential to support a variety of applications including high-datarate Internet and multimedia traffic at a reasonable degree of implementation complexity. This article discusses the potential benefits of this structure and addresses several relevant issues necessary to support such a network. More specifically, it focuses

We also present capacity bounds that illustrate how these techniques help in trading off conserved power for a multifold capacity advantage.
