• Why join Small Cell Forum

Why join

Our track record speaks for itself: we have driven the standardization of key elements of small cell technology including Iuh, FAPI/SCAPI, SON, the small cell services API, TR‑069 evolution and the X2 interface.
Today our members are driving solutions to mission critical issues that include Wi-Fi integration, SON evolution, virtualization of the small cell layer, integration of small cells into 5G standards evolution, interoperability and regulatory development.

Who can join?

Small Cell Forum membership is open to any legally established corporation, individual firm, partnership, governmental body or international organization supporting the promotion and worldwide deployment of small cell technologies.
