Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication is anticipated to provide significant throughout gains in urban scenarios. To this end, network densification is a necessity to meet the high traffic volume generated by smart phones, tablets, and sensory devices while overcoming large pathloss and high blockages at mmWaves frequencies. These denser networks are created with users deploying small mmWave base stations (BSs) in a plug-and-play fashion. Although, this deployment method provides the required density, the amorphous deployment of BSs needs distributed management. To address this difficulty, we propose a self-organizing method to allocate power to mmWave BSs in an ultra dense network. The proposed method consists of two parts: clustering using fast local clustering and power allocation via Q-learning. The important features of the proposed method are its scalability and self-organizing capabilities, which are both important features of 5G. Our simulations demonstrate that the introduced method, provides required quality of service (QoS) for all the users independent of the size of the network.
