Comparison of Radiation Exposure between DVBT2, WLAN, 5G and other Sources with Respect to Law and Regulation Issues

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Current trends show that the demand for Internet bandwidth, especially regarding mobile end devices, is increasing significantly and will continue with an exponential growth in the future. In this regard, it is necessary to provide new technologies to meet the bandwidth requirements. In particular, the technology standard 5G and others are being promoted and realised worldwide, which rises a public discussion regarding the relevant non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation exposure for the population. In view of this field of tension, this publication presents a comparison of the non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation exposure between mobile radio transmitters, state of the art TV broadcast transmitters like DVB-T2 and WLAN base stations as part of long-term measurements. In particular, the different power flux densities of the technologies mentioned are measured, compared and also discussed with regard to the legal framework and limits.
