An architecture for a radio network having nodes that are subject to dynamically changing topology such as, e.g., a mobile radio network. The network is partitioned into a number of physical subnets wherein each physical subnet includes a certain number of network nodes in relatively close proximity to one another. Each node of each physical subnet is affiliated with a corresponding node of each of the other physical subnets, thus defining a certain number of virtual subnets. A desired communications path is routed from a source node of one physical subnet to a destination node of another physical subnet, by routing certain parts of the path within one or more physical subnets during a first transmission phase, and routing remaining parts of the path within one or more virtual subnets during a second transmission phase.
