Abstract

Reliable and efficient networks are the trend for next-generation wireless communications. Recent improved hardware technologies – known as Large Intelligent Surfaces (LISs) – have decreased the energy consumption of wireless networks, while theoretically being capable of offering an unprecedented boost to the data rates and energy efficiency (EE). In this paper, we use stochastic geometry to provide performance analysis of a realistic two-step user association based millimeter wave (mmWave) networks consisting of multiple users, transmitters and one-hop reflection from a LIS. All the base stations (BSs), users and LISs are equipped with multiple uniform linear antenna arrays. The results confirm that LIS-assisted networks significantly enhance capacity and achieve higher optimal EE as compared to traditional systems when the density of BSs is not large. Moreover, there is a trade-off between the densities of LIS and BS when there is a total density constraint. It is shown that the LISs are excellent supplements for traditional cellular networks, which enormously enhance the average rate and area spectral efficiency (ASE) of mmWave networks. However, when the BS density is higher than the LIS density, the reflected interference and phase-shift energy consumption will limit the performance of LIS-assisted networks, so it is not necessary to employ the LIS devices.
