SCF virtual plenary: Catch up if you missed out
Hurricane Ian scuppered our first face-to-face plenary in three years. However, the show must go on and big thanks to work item leads and the SCF team for pulling together what turned out to be an extremely productive virtual sessions at the last moment.
We ran two full days of sessions, which not only captured the state-of-play of key work items, but also laid the foundations for new initiatives – including the reboot of SCF regulatory activity, with particular emphasis on neutral host requirements, and the evolution of Open6 work streams.
All the sessions were captured for posterity and are available on the member site here (remember to log in first before using the link).
