5G FAPI specs updated with richer 3GPP feature set
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.FIND OUT MORE
This describes the SCF roadmap for a series of technical and deployment blueprints that will provide common reference designs and deployment processes that reduce the time, cost and risk of developing a small cell network. While based on standard specifications, the blueprints will be specific to certain roll-out scenarios that are not currently addressed by the frameworks of other organizations. The first blueprints will focus on private networks.Download Find out more
Globally, regions are homing-in on hosting frameworks which fit with the specifics of their markets – for example, CBRS/OnGo in the US and JOTS NHIB in the UK. In this document, SCF neutral hosts are proposing a global framework around these approaches called Hosted Open RAN.Download Find out more
This paper provides an overview of 5G split 6 S-RU and S-DU products and architecture. It examines the impact of split 6 on 5G base station compliance testing, develops options and proposes different solutions for testing S-RU and S-DUs and delivers an overview of TS38.141 test approach for split 6 productsDownload Find out more
