Abstract

This paper proposes a three-dimensional (3D) communication channel model for an indoor environment considering the effect of the Hypersurface. The Hypersurface is a software controlled intelligent metasurface, which can be used to manipulate electromagnetic waves, as for example for nonspecular reflection and full absorption. Thus it can control the impinging rays from a transmitter towards a receiver location in both LOS and NLOS paths, e.g. to combat distance and improve wireless connectivity. We focus on the 60 GHz mmWave frequency band due to its increasing significance in 5G/6G networks and evaluate the effect of Hypersurface in an indoor environment in terms of attenuation coefficients related to the Hypersurface reflection and absorption functionalities, using CST simulation, a 3D electromagnetic simulator of high frequency components. To highlight the benefits of Hypersurface coated walls versus plain walls, we use the derived Hypersurface 3D channel model and a custom 3D ray-tracing simulator for plain walls considering a typical indoor scenario for different Tx-Rx location and separation distances.
