5G is the 5th generation of mobile networks, a significant evolution of today’s 4G networks. It is being designed to meet the very large growth in data and connectivity of today’s modern society, the internet of things with billions of connected devices and tomorrow’s innovations. In addition to delivering faster connections and greater capacity, a very important advantage of 5G is the fast response time referred to as latency, which for 5G will be around 1 millisecond which is virtually instantaneous. This enables the widespread connection of devices for our smart cities and homes, autonomous and safer vehicles, enhanced health care and education.

There has been a lot of interest in the biological effects of millimetre waves recently. This 'study-in-a-slide' provides a quick overview of some key points from a recent detailed review of the literature undertaken by Alekseev and Ziskin that forms chapter six in the 'Handbook of Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields' (B. Greenebaum and F. Barnes, editors), 4th ed, 2019.

The SAR value is a measure of the amount of RF power absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. Exposure limits have been set by expert scientists and provide for substantial margins of safety.
May 2019 | Discussion Paper
As part of the GARI project, the MWF has committed to regular reviews of the features that we report on in light of changes in the technology and customer needs. As a result, we invite all stakeholders to provide any comments or suggestions on the features that they would like to see reported on by manufacturers, as well as comments on the usability of the GARI website.

5G addresses the very large growth in data and connectivity demand as more and more devices go online and remain connected 24/7. 5G offer much faster connections, shorter response times (latency) and increased capacity, and is a key infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT) and innovation of emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, smart manufacturing and virtual reality.
However, public concern over the deployment of this infrastructure in some countries has led to the adoption of arbitrary restrictions, such as lower national exposure limits. These restrictions are not based on a clear scientific rationale taking into account the weight of research. Such measures provide no additional health protection for the community but they do have a real impact on efficient network deployment and operation and can adversely affect the introduction and deployment of new technologies such as 5G that would otherwise provide further economic and social benefits to the community. This paper examines the technical and public policy implications of arbitrarily lower RF exposure limits.
