Densely deployment of the small cells in 5G networks will bring high‐quality service to the end users as well as will solve the small footprint coverage problem of millimeter‐waves. The increase in the number of small cells will require self‐organized systems to enable the seamless transaction between heterogeneous network environment. Therefore, a survey‐style study on self‐organized seamless coverage in 5G, covering millimeter‐wave features and its indoor and outdoor coverage along with some machine learning techniques are presented in this article.
