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
Accurate planning of the location of small cells has always been important. However, the challenges of planning the best sites to achieve well-targeted, interference-free signals for 4G and 5G, whilst keeping costs under control, have increased significantly in line with the need for very high levels of data usage and truly ubiquitous coverage.
A new paper, co-authored by SCF and 5G Americas – ‘Precision planning for 5G Era networks with small cells’ – provides operators with a detailed blueprint for precision planning of small cells, which will enable them to avoid the pitfalls of densification.
