The telecommunication system is still the key to success and survival from the very pre-historic man with fire signal to the current smart-phone with the millions of applications. Fifth Generation (5G) mobile network refers to the next major phase of mobile telecommunications system beyond the currently available IMT-Advanced/4G standards. 5G is expected to fulfil major demands of data services in telecommunication system along with new era of Internet of Things (IoT). A lot of researchers have proposed the probable technological enhancement for the 5G network. Some big projects like METIS [1] and 5GNOW [2] already progressed significantly towards 5G. In [3], authors highlight five disruptive technology directions for 5G network which are device-centric architecture, milimeter wave (mmWave), massive MIMO, smarter devices, native support for machine to machine (M2M) communications. A multi-tier 5G wireless cellular network from an interference management perspective is suggested in [4]. In this paper, visions and requirements for the 5G multi-tier network are discussed that are data rate and latency, Machine Type Communication (MTC) devices, mmWave communication multiple RATS, base station densification, prioritized spectrum access, network-assisted Device to Device (D2D) communication, energy harvesting for energy-efficient commumcation. 3D beamforming [5] is another scope of 5G. 5G network is assumed to change into device-centric architecture [3]. Uniform network solution is the trend and challenge for the 5G network. Wireless communications without mobility could hardly be imagined. Mobility management for the any wireless communications has been regarded as the high priority issue. We have almost smooth mobility management for the latest telecommunications system like LTE-A. However, mobility for the D2D devices is not so easy to compare with the currently available techniques. The aim of the paper is to establish an algorithm that will facilitate the smooth mobility system for the D2D devices. An excellent survey [6] explains almost all the basics of D2D communication in a cellular network. It also highlights the major areas in this regard. Survey papers [7] [8] also describe the overall concepts and research ideas in D2D communication.
