The residual hardware impairments originating from transceiver hardware such as phase noise, amplifier non-linearity, in-phase, and quadrature imbalances create distortion noises generating a mismatch between an intended and a received signal. This letter investigates the outage probability performance of a device-to-device communication-assisted millimeter wave (mmWave) network by considering interference and practical hardware distortion noises. Note that all channels are modeled as independent and non-identically distributed Nakagami- m fading channels, which is a suitable assumption for mmWave communication according to recent research. Numerical results are corroborated by Monte Carlo simulations.
