The 5G architecture has been defined few months before launching the future generation of cellular networks. This revolutionary milestone encourages academics and researchers to improve this technology. The main goal of this perceivable work is to construct a 5G network in the center of Marrakech City, a convenable area to apply the Dense Urban Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) scenario. The non-standalone deployment was the best option for this work, due to its advantages for the signal transmission. Our construction study is based on the visualization of the Signal-to-Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (SINR) in the simulation part, in order to test the transmissions effectiveness of the studied and the proposed scheme. This paper highlights the necessary elements that will constitute our 5G network. Using this framework, the 5G network planning in the center of Marrakech City will be evaluated.
