Beyond Massive MIMO: The Potential of Data Transmission With Large Intelligent Surfaces

  title={Beyond Massive MIMO: The Potential of Data Transmission With Large Intelligent Surfaces},
  author={Sha Hu and Fredrik Rusek and Ove Edfors},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing},
In this paper, we consider the potential of data transmission in a system with a massive number of radiating and sensing elements, thought of as a contiguous surface of electromagnetically active material. We refer to this as a large intelligent surface (LIS), which is a newly proposed concept and conceptually goes beyond contemporary massive MIMO technology. First, we consider capacities of single-antenna autonomous terminals communicating to the LIS where the entire surface is used as a… CONTINUE READING
