These tie together all the Forum’s projects across the HetNet and create a powerful framework for the transition to 5G.

“With 5G on the horizon, Small Cell Forum is focused on delivering the enabling technologies and architecture to ensure the automation, service delivery and interoperability required to make it a success,” said David Orloff, Chair Elect of Small Cell Forum. “Our new members bring valuable expertise from across the mobile and internet ecosystems. I am delighted to welcome each of them and look forward to hearing their contributions.”

Outgoing Chair Alan Law said: “Each new member broadens our knowledge base and enhances the Forum’s capability and credibility. The participation of major internet players shows that small cells have well and truly crossed the chasm and that the technology can be exploited to satisfy swelling demands for capacity around the world. I’m stepping down at a time when the combined strength and reach of our member organisations means SCF is well positioned and resourced to continue driving development and innovation.”
