EMF Radiation in Mobile Networks

A Closer Look at Emission Limits & Safe Distances

Over the years, questions arose whether EMF radiation coming from mobile wireless networks is harmful to humans. Various government and non-government agencies have tackled this problem in the past and defined what constitutes an acceptable EMF emission.

Recently, as 5G technology started to get deployed at millimeter wave frequencies, a public debate arose whether a 5G network EMF radiation is harmful to unsuspecting general population.

This white paper summarizes the emission limits imposed by various worldwide governing bodies, gives theoretical background regarding the computation of EMF radiation compliance distance, and gives numerical examples as to what the safe distance from emission is in indoor wireless networks in selected countries around the world.

We will also discuss how adding a new 5G network to an existing in-building multi-technology network and how massive MIMO affect the compliance distance.
