European Plenary: Cannes, France

Monday 27 – Wednesday 29 March 2017

(Chairs & Board Meeting Thursday 30 March 2017)

SCF is uniquely positioned to determine how to deploy advanced 4G networks that can cost-effectively evolve to support profitable Hyperdense 5G networks. Join your SCF colleagues in the South of France as we build on our work to commercialize Hyperdense HetNets and guide the industry towards a robust 5G framework.

Attendance at the event gives you as a key role as we develop the strategies that will help our industry evolve. Ensure that your requirements are being addressed as we tackle the business and technology enablers that need to be in place before the first 5G New Radio is deployed. From business models to backhaul, from automation to virtualization, you can be involved in setting the requirements and solving the problems.

An executive board meeting and Chairs meeting will be held on Thursday 30 March 2017

Operator Advisory Council – an exclusive operator group that defines the 5G Foundation Initiative’s business and technical requirements and steers the work of the Forum.

Business Development – define new value chains and business services for a 5G world where Enterprises manage their in-building cellular networks and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is the norm.

Operations – provide industry baseline small cell site selection guidelines and address the requirements for 5G fronthaul and backhaul to support Hyperdense HetNets.

Technology – define small cell architectures for the evolution to 5G (including shared spectrum, neutral host, enhanced SON, MEC-enabled Private Mobile Broadband, Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications, IoT), and accelerate adoption of nFAPI as the industry standard for small cell densification/virtualization.

Interoperability – enable a healthy ecosystem with regular mission-critical Plugfests (upcoming: hyperdense SON, private ePC, and MEC API).
