With the developments of communication technology, the number of wireless devices is increasing day by day. Fifth-generation (5G) has an important place in the communication of these devices. Different technologies have been proposed to fulfill the requirements of 5G standards. Among these technologies, Large Intelligent Surfaces (LIS) promise the future for the realization of 5G technology. LIS are the communication technology whose name has been heard recently. In this paper, the topic of LIS has been discussed with considering some scenarios different fading channels. Furthermore, performance analysis has been performed over Rician and Weibull fading channels by considering the computer programmed application of LIS. A comparison of dual-hop (DH) and access point (AP) types, which are LIS types, was realized. The results were interpreted and new solution proposals were discussed.
