MWF Annual Report 2018
April 2019 | Report

Thanks to the MWF’s long-term commitment and continuous advancements in these areas, the association has positioned itself as a proactive and reliable partner in promoting mobile accessibility, raising awareness about the issue and dangers of counterfeit devices and helping to address questions about the health and safety of wireless devices.

In 2018, the MWF was active in 56 countries around the world, engaged with regional organizations on six continents and worked in collaboration with a wide network of associations, standardization bodies, research institutions and regulatory bodies.

Brussels & 5G
April 2019 | Viewpoint

The region of Brussels in Belgium introduced arbitrarily low EMF exposure limits more than a decade ago, which caused problems for 4G deployment and now threatens 5G with the delay of a planned pilot deployment. It should be noted that the EMF limits were introduced for political purposes and contrary to the advice of the World Health Organization which states: “Considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.”

Measurement of EMF exposure around small cell base station sites
March 2019 | Infographic

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 a practical study of the devices in real world settings. For this reason, the MWF and the Small Cell Forum commissioned in 2017 a measurement program, the results of which were published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

The graph summarises the study set up and conclusions.

GARI Annual Report 2018
March 2019 | Report

GARI’s mission – as relevant today as it was 10 years ago: GARI’s mission is to inform consumers about existing accessibility solutions in the market today and help them identify devices with features that best help their individual needs. This includes mobile phones with built-in screen readers, ‘simple access’ for persons who find today’s user interfaces overwhelming, Wearables with haptic feedback, Smart TVs that allow voice recognition for accessing features, or mobile apps that have been developed specifically to help overcome a barrier in daily life like finding accessible locations.

Throughout 2018 and across many meetings and events related to accessibility across the globe, the need for better information on available solutions as well as education of users and digital capacity building among persons with disabilities and older users, was a recurring theme and reconfirmed that having one central source of information on accessible devices is very much needed.

The report outlines the progress made with the GARI project and the MWF's initiatives on mobile accessibility throughout the year 2018.

L'importance des mesures de contrôle qualité dans les études scientifiques
February 2019 | Viewpoint

Dans un document de Vijayalaxmia et Prihodab TJ , les auteurs ont examiné l'influence de quatre mesures de contrôle qualité qui sont idéalement associées aux études d'exposition à l'énergie des fréquences radio. Dans cette analyse particulière, ils ont évalué 225 publications dans la période 1990-2017, concernant 110 études sur des animaux et 115 études sur des cellules humaines exposées in vitro et in vivo à l'énergie des fréquences radio (concernant 2160 résultats de tests réels).
