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.



Taipei – SCF and ITRI run inspiring events around shared 5G vision

Taiwan was the setting for two exciting events for Small Cell Forum last week. We co-hosted a 5G workshop with Taiwan’s famous technology R&D institute, ITRI, which attracted high-impact speakers from operators and vendors in the region to share their views on the role of small cells in 5G.

This was run in parallel with the latest SCF plugfest, also conducted in partnership with ITRI, which focused on private evolved packet core (EPC), an important enabling technology for a host of enterprise small cell use cases.
