5G FAPI specs updated with richer 3GPP feature set

5G FAPI suite with richer 3GPP feature set to underpin supply chain diversification

SCF has updated the suite of 5G FAPI specifications which underpin the high-performance low-cost components integral to 5G mobile base stations, whether small cell or macro. This update demonstrates the ongoing commitment of the ecosystem to continually improve the standard, adding new features and maintaining existing ones.



Don’t miss out on the best chance this year to set the HetNet agenda

A reminder from SCF Chair David Orloff, to register for the Cannes plenary

Make sure you have your place secured at Small Cell Forum’s plenary meeting, to be held in Cannes in just two weeks’ time. This will be a vital event for all members to attend, and your chance to shape the Forum’s agenda for enterprise expansion and for the road to 5G. You can register here»

It can be hard to think about another event, so soon after Mobile World Congress, and with London’s Small Cell World Summit looming. But the Cannes plenary is different.

Yes, it will build on the discussions and lessons from Barcelona, and prepare the way for a fruitful conference in London. But it is a very different event, one where you, as members, have your best chance to influence the decisions which will shape our whole industry in the years ahead.

Those decisions are particularly crucial at a time when we see the progress towards dense HetNets and 5G accelerating. It would be too easy to miss the commercial opportunities which all this activity will produce. In Cannes, this will be the heart of the program – how can small cell operators and vendors profit from the sometimes bewildering developments in the mobile industry?

There will be no better time or place to get to the heart of that issue. All the right people – the early movers, the decision makers, the technologists – will be there in the room, with no distractions from an external conference.

Representatives from GSMA and ETSI will be present, because the Forum’s work is at the heart of standards evolution, as 4.5G and 5G increasingly focus on dense small cell networks.

And there is a very intensive work program, to build on the successful start to the Forum’s enterprise initiatives, and to set priorities for the year ahead in a wide range of critical areas, from siting challenges to 5G preparation.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of these decisions, and to ensure your organization can take full advantage of the latest mobile industry developments.
