This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts covered in the preceding chapters of this book. The book provides an in-depth treatment of the fundamental physics behind the intelligent planar structures, and details the research roadmap towards their development and hardware and prototyping features. It presents the potentials of intelligent surfaces in boosting the performance of future wireless applications in terms of reliability, security, and latency. The book delves into the very basic fundamentals of intelligent reconfigurable surface (IRS), as an enabler for novel technological trends accompanied with the evolution of sixth-generation networks. It sheds lights on the underlying channel models over a wide range of frequency bands for single and multi-IRS scenarios, the hardware architecture, and operational concepts of IRS-enabled wireless systems, paving the way for the smooth comprehension of the preliminary concepts and facilitating the practical realization of efficient IRS systems.
