5G technology is considered to bring dramatic improvements from the large scale data transmission to latency, from reliable data trasmission to energy efficiency. One significant improvement is expected in the communication rates between the mobile users at cell edges. Device-to-device (D2D) communication is an important technique to meet the higher data rates between the mobile users at cell edges compared to standard base station communication. In this paper, important decrease in the outage probability is presented in the limited regions on the cell edge when the D2D communication is used for cellular networks with multiple antennas. Moreover, the effects of the parameters of these regions on this decrease are examined.
