A novel content caching strategy is proposed for a cache enabled device-to-device (D2D) network where the user devices are allowed to communicate using millimeter wave (mmWave) D2D links (> 6GHz) as well as conventional sub 6 GHz cellular links. The proposed content placement strategy maximizes the successful content delivery probability of a line of sight D2D link. Furthermore, a heuristic algorithm is proposed for efficient content delivery. The overall scheme improves the successful traffic offloading gain of the network compared to conventional cache-hit maximizing content placement and delivery strategies. Significant energy efficiency improvements can also be achieved in ultra-dense ne..
