BARCELONA, Spain -- The Small Cell Forum, the independent industry and operator association that supports small cell deployment worldwide, today announced Small Cell Release One.
This is the first deliverable in its Release programme, which helps operators by providing all the information they need to successfully launch the technology in one easily digestible package. The theme of Release One is the Home, providing the complete body of work that operators will need to know in order to deploy residential femtocells.
Release One also contains significant advanced work on future releases, including enterprise, metro, and rural small cells.
Release One is aimed at operators who have waited to deploy residential small cells until the market and technology were proven while also assisting operators planning newer enterprise, metro and rural rollouts.
It provides all the business case and technical detail, including recommended equipment specifications for RFPs, together with best practice from the operators which have successfully deployed femtocells in scale.
Release One also contains cutting edge information aimed at assisting new enterprise, metro and rural deployments, including two major new whitepapers on backhaul and rural rollouts, addressing concerns widely raised by carriers, as well as an operator agreement on key requirements for public access small cells.
