Measuring human exposure to 5G


Date: 26-06-2019

5G is the latest generation of mobile network technology. It promises greater capacity, as well as significantly faster download speeds than the current 4G networks. It will mean loading the HD version of a three-hour movie like Avengers: Endgame in seconds, rather than the minutes it currently takes. More significantly, it opens up exciting new possibilities for a range of technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR).

“5G is set to revolutionize wireless communications and play a major role in our future connected society and facilitate the road towards a more advanced Internet of Things,” says Mike Wood, who chairs IEC Technical Committee 106, which prepares international standards on measurement and calculation methods to assess human exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. The members of TC 106 include global experts from mobile operators, mobile manufacturers, academia, government regulators and testing laboratories
