In smart cities, cellular network plays a crucial role to support wireless access for numerous devices anywhere and anytime. The future 5G network aims to build the infrastructure from mobile internet to connected world. Small Cell is one of the most promising technologies of 5G to provide more connections and high data rate. In order to make the best use of small cell technology, smart cell planning should be implemented to guarantee connectivity and performance for all end nodes. It is particularly a challenging task to deploy dense small cells in the presence of dynamic traffic demands and severe co-channel interference. In this paper, we model various traffic patterns using stochastic geometry approach and propose an energy-efficient scheme to deploy and plan small cells according to the prevailing traffic pattern. The simulation results indicate that our scheme can meet dynamic traffic demands with optimized deployment of small cells and enhance the energy efficiency of the system without compromising on quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. In addition, our scheme can achieve very close performance compared with the leading optimization solver CPLEX and find solutions in much less computational times than CPLEX.
