Small Cell Siting Challenges

Small Cell Forum accelerates small cell adoption to drive the wide-scale adoption of small cells and accelerate the delivery of integrated HetNets. We have driven the standardization of key elements of small cell technology including Iuh, FAPI, nFAPI, SON, services APIs, TR-069 evolution and the enhancement of the X2 interface.

The Small Cell Forum Release Program has now established business cases and market drivers for all the main use cases, clarifying market needs and addressing barriers to deployment for residential, enterprise, rural & remote, and urban small cells. The theme of Release 9 is Commercializing Hyperdense HetNets, which looks at practical solutions to help operators transform their network capacity and performance, and which are deployable and cost-effective right now.
