The Federal Office for Radiation Protection
(BfS) holds in the course of the auction of 5G frequencies further research on the health consequences
Electromagnetic radiation necessary. Significantly higher
Data transfer rates, new and additional transmitters and higher
Frequencies changed the radiation intensities, said BfS president
Inge Paulini the Passauer New Press, "These must
to be examined."
The new 5G standard also uses higher frequencies in the medium term, according to Paulini. "Here are a few left
Findings and will continue to do further research in the medium term, "said the scientist
open, what happens, if different operators at the same
Location Transmitting power structures. Previously, there had already been an open letter from scientists requesting further research into the health effects.
Federal Network Agency auctioned the 5G frequencies in Mainz. The new mobile standard is to go step by step
replace the current LTE technology and a number of
Pave the way for future technologies. The auction can last for weeks, the state is expected to generate billions in revenues.
5G stands for the fifth mobile generation. The advantages of the new standard:
5G can transport the data about 100 times faster than the
current standard LTE, also called 4G. In addition, in one
5G radio cell are operated much more devices than under older ones
Standards. With 5G devices can be accurately located to one meter
become. The so-called latencies are close to zero, that is, the
Data transfer happens almost in real time.
