EMF exposure and synchronization challenges in 5G

Planned use of millimeter waves by future wireless telecommunications, particularly the 5th generation (5G) of mobile networks, has given rise to public concern about any possible adverse effects to human health. Given limited reach, 5G will require cell antennas every 100 to 200 meters, exposing many people to millimeter wave radiation. 5G also employs new technologies which pose unique challenges for measuring exposures.

New generation of radio networks in 5G produce new demands for quality of synchronization. High throughput and low latency are hard to achieve without well synchronized mobile devices and radio heads. That is why we need to set up proper synchronization network architecture and tune all network locations to fulfill high requirements and deliver high quality services to end customers.
