Abstract

Reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) technology is a smart way of controlling the radio signal propagation to improve the capacity and coverage of wireless networks. RIS tunes the phase shifts of the incident signals in a dynamic fashion. Channel modeling is an important aspect in RIS-based mmWave communication for the next-generation wireless networks. However, to achieve maximum benefit from RIS-assisted wireless systems, it is essential to provide accurate channel state information (CSI). But, it is very challenging to get accurate CSI because of large number of RIS elements, their passive nature, and the training overhead involved during the channel estimation. To overcome the higher training overhead, in this article we aimed to take advantage of the correlation and sparsity of channels in RIS-assisted channel estimation. The objective of this work is to propose a simplified channel model for the RIS-assisted physical channel of a massive multi-input-multi-output (mMIMO) wireless communication system and analyze its performance in terms of transmitted powers, MIMO configurations, and achievable bit rates. The simulated results proved that the strategic placement of RIS with optimal phase shifts and optimal MIMO configuration can enhance the maximum achievable rate. The achievable rates of the proposed channel modeling are compared with the existing state-of-the-art methods to prove its efficiency. Also, the combination of mMIMO technology along with RIS-assisted communication provides degrees of freedom in terms of signal coverage, energy consumption, and system complexity.
