With the ever-increasing demand for data on mobile devices, network operators are looking at a range of options to increase their network capacity. One of these options is through the use of ‘small cell’ sites, an umbrella term for operator-controlled, low-powered radio access nodes.
While the radio-frequency exposure from small cells is equivalent to other low-powered equipment, there has been interest in undertaking a practical study of the devices in real world settings.
The Mobile Manufacturers Forum [www.mmfai.org] and the Small Cell Forum [ http://www.smallcellforum.org/ ] are requesting proposals from suitably qualified researchers to undertake such a measurement program with the view to having the results published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal for the benefit of the larger research community and all interested stakeholders.
