In order to enable molecular communication on macroscopic distances without a moving medium, the model of diffusion-based information transmission with a large number of relays suspended in the medium, hence at random positions, is proposed. With an increasing number of relays, the stochastic variations approach zero and the system exhibits a quasi-deterministic behavior. Furthermore, the transmission time becomes inversely proportional to the number of relays and the impulse response independent of the channel length. Thus, the model describes a wave-like propagation, which is fundamentally different from the established flow- and diffusion-based approaches in molecular communication.
