The paper mainly focuses on the network planning and optimization problem in the 5G telecommunication system based on the numerical investigation. There have been two portions of this work, such as network planning for efficient network models and optimization of power allocation in the 5G network. The radio network planning process has been completed based on a specific area. The data rate requirement can be solved by allowing the densification of the system by deploying small cells. The radio network planning scheme is the indispensable platform in arranging a wireless network that encounters convinced coverage method, capacity, and Quality of Service necessities.  In this study, the eighty micro base stations and two-hundred mobile stations are deployed in the -15km×15km wide selected area in the Yangon downtown area. The optimization processes were also analyzed based on the source and destination nodes in the 5G network. The base stations' location is minimized and optimized in a selected geographical area with the linear programming technique and analyzed in this study.
