Building practical models of millimeter-wave networks which encompass every possible usage scenario presents a significant challenge. To address this issue, we propose an analytical framework based on stochastic geometry to model networks that are composed of millimeter-wave nodes. Our framework utilizes κ-μ shadowed fading to bring together, in a single model, various usage cases that span both indoor and outdoor environments. We analytically derive the distribution of the signal-to-interference-and-noise-ratio for a general millimeterwave network distributed over a confined space. This allows us to explore the relationship between basic network parameters, such as node density, beamwidth, or transmit power, and the parameter space of the fading channel. Finally, we show, that when one assumes this network to be distributed over the whole Euclidean plane, its coverage can be described via remarkably simple closed-form expression.
