Analytical Performance Evaluation of THz Wireless Fiber Extenders



This paper presents the theoretical framework for the performance evaluation of terahertz (THz) wireless fiber extender in the presence of misalignment and multipath fading. In more detail, after providing the appropriate system model that incorporates the different operation, design, and environmental parameters, such as the operation frequency, transceivers antenna gains, the level of misalignment as well as the stochastic behavior of the channel, we extract novel closed-form expressions for the ergodic capacity. These expressions are expected to be used as useful tools for the analysis and design of such systems. Moreover, several insightful scenarios are simulated. Their results highlight the importance of taking into account the impact of misalignment fading when analyzing the performance of the THz wireless fiber extender.
