Overview: The Small Cell Forum, formerly known as the Femto Forum, promotes the wide-scale adoption of small cells. Small cells are low-power wireless access points that operate in licensed spectrum, are operator-managed and feature edge-based intelligence. They provide improved cellular coverage, capacity and applications for homes and enterprises as well as metropolitan and rural public spaces. They include technologies variously described as femtocells, picocells, microcells and metrocells. The Forum has over 100 members, including operators representing more than a billion mobile subscribers, as well as telecoms, hardware and software vendors, content providers and innovative start-ups.
