It is not difficult to anticipate that the system capacity and spectral efficiency of 5G will be greater than those of 4G, and so will the number of network-connected wireless devices. More- over, the infrastructure of wireless communications today will not meet the requirements of a 5G environment because a large number of traffic flows will be generated between a large number of heterogeneous devices. The deployment strategy is one of the promising solutions to meet the expected demands of 5G. This article begins with a brief review of the deployment problem of wireless communication and a hyper- dense deployment problem (HDDP) definition for the requirements of 5G. A simple example for illustrating how a metaheuristic algorithm can be used to solve the HDDP is then given. Finally, some open and possible research issues are discussed to suggest future research trends on this problem.
