      Industry coalesces around long-term small cell vision ahead of 5G

      Network densification is seen as an imperative to support the vision of 5G. This requires many things: more fiber, more cell sites–at both the macro level and major increases in the number of small cell locations–broad support for all types of spectrum, interoperability and collaboration among industry stakeholders. To help drive these needs, Small Cell Forum has developed a vision for the evolution of networks in cooperation with 3GPP, GSMA, NGMN, ETSI, CTIA, ONAP, X-RAN, CBRS, TIA and MEF.
