It is provided a solution for assigning to a relay node of a wireless telecommunication system an identifier from which a corresponding identifier of a central node associated with the relay node is derivable according to a determined rule. Accordingly, the identifiers of central nodes and their relay nodes are assigned in a manner which facilitates identification of a central node from a received relay node identifier, thereby avoiding the necessity of consulting higher layer controllers in order to identify the central node.
