Terahertz band has gained enormous interest recently due to its wide bandwidth availability, and the data rate is reaching 100 Gbps are nowadays achievable. The current advancement in Terahertz technology is aiming to achieve the data rate up to 1 Terabit per second. However, the unique band characteristics introduce some issues related to the propagation channel like high path and absorption loss which increases with distance. Such limitations at one hand can limit the coverage and throughput. But, on the other hand, suits indoor environment such as data center, a data center geometry is used in this paper to design and model a network of THz nodes placed on the top of the data center racks, to increase network connectivity, THz reflectors are positioned on ceiling and walls. Through simulations, we show that it is possible to reduce the average number of interferers in the system and minimize bit error probability by using specific waveforms and planar antenna array with active variable elements.
