Latest SCF release

SCF neutral host members have proposed a global framework for Hosted Open RAN networks. The framework aims to combine the qualities of established and emerging neutral host architectures, ranging from site share and DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems), to small cells with CBRS and JOTS NHIB (Joint Operator Technical Specifications for Neutral Host In-Building). You can find out more, download the paper and hear from the contributors themselves in our latest video, on our neutral host requirements landing page.
