Small Cell Forum Releases

Welcome to the Release Program

The Small Cell Forum Release Program has now established business cases and market drivers for all the main use cases. Our most recent outputs are a series of practical working guides to make densification using small cells a commercial reality, both for today’s 4G and for future 5G networks.

While 5G standards are still being defined, it is clear that network densification is fundamental to meeting the cardinal requirements of high capacity, low latency and 100% coverage. These new outputs outline SCF’s activities in addressing technical, practical and commercial barriers to densification.

As well as identifying and expanding upon the key role densification will play in driving future networks, these publications detail what it takes for operators and the enterprise to commercially deploy a hyperdense network today; including comprehensive explanations of regulatory, logistical and operational considerations.
