SCF is a global membership organization committed to supporting agile, low-cost mobile infrastructure through small cells. Our mission is to make mobile cellular connectivity an accessible resource for organizations of all sizes, and to support the digital transformation of industry, enterprise and communities.
As the mobile ecosystem has evolved, we’ve seen a significant shift from a traditional B2C environment to a B2B and B2C environment, providing potential for new business relationships and opportunities:
Small cells are the means by which enterprise, industry and communities are joining the mobile economy and finding new ways to create value with mobile connectivity.
SCF’s work program has been developed to support this new connectivity agenda, helping to promote and deliver the opportunities and overcome any barriers.
