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.



Three Fundamental Strategies For Achieving 5G

CommScope believes there are three fundamental strategies for achieving the 5G vision: densification, virtualization and optimization. Network operators will need more cell sites, more backhaul and more fiber for 5G. Wireless networks are going to become more like data centers in the core and RAN to increase agility. The efficient use of spectrum and new technologies are also key. I explain more in this short video. Check out our Mobile World Congress 2017 website for some of the technologies that will lay the foundation.
