With the advent of 5G communication networks, the number of devices on the core 5G network significantly increases. A 5G network is a cloud native, massively connected internet of things (IoT) platform with a huge number of devices hosted on the network now known as massive machine type communication (mMTC). As ultra-low latency is pivotal in developing 5G communication, a proper cell association scheme is now required to meet the load and traffic needs of the new network, opposed to older cell association schemes which were based only on the reference signal received power (RSRP). This paper proposes an unsupervised machine learning algorithm, namely hidden Markov model (HMM) learning on the network’s telemetry data, which is used to learn network parameters and select the best eNodeB for cell association. The proposed model uses an HMM learning followed by decoding for selecting the optimal cell for association. Copyright © 2020 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
