Like it or not we’re rapidly moving into the world of 5G, or 5th generation cellular telecommunications.
Because the frequency bandwidths used currently by cell phones and similar technologies are becoming saturated.
And also because we live in a world where people want more. 5G, and the Internet of Things (IoT) that goes with it, promises to give us more.
But more what?
Super-Fast Download Speeds
5G and IoT promises to connect us in our homes, schools, workplaces, cities, parks and open spaces to over a trillion objects around the world. It promises cars that drive themselves, washing machines that order their own washing powder and softener plus of course super fast downloads and streaming.
According to Fortune.com 5G will support at least 100 billion devices and will be 10 to 100 times faster than current 4G technology.(4G was already about 10 times faster than 3G).
It’ll bring download speed up to 10 Gigabits per second. This would let us have an entire building of people send each other data in close to no time, thus improving productivity.
What is 5G?
5G offers mind-blowing data capabilities, practically unrestricted call volumes and near infinite data broadcast. It does this by 5G using largely untapped bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is between 30GHz and 300GHz, as well as some lower and mid-range frequencies.
This table explains compares the different generations of mobile technologies:

There are some other features of 5G you need to be aware of:
Wireless Cell Antennas Galore
Millimeter waves (MMWs) do not travel well through buildings and they tend to be absorbed by rain and plants. This interferes with the signal. Added to this, high frequency waves like MMWs also have much shorter wavelengths that can’t travel far.
To counter this problem 5G will utilize smaller cell stations (and the technology of beamforming) that’ll scramble/unscramble and redirect packets of data on a no-interference path back to us. This could mean wireless antennas on every lamp post, utility pole, home and business throughout entire neighborhoods, towns and cities.
This short video gives a succinct explanation of what you can expect:

MIMO Miniature Cell Towers
Current 4G cell towers have about a dozen or so antenna ports to support all communication, the new, smaller 5G cell towers (or bases) will be MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) and carry about a hundred ports. These towers will probably be about 4 feet tall as opposed to the usual 90 feet towers currently erected around us. Cells will be available within a 100 meter range and these smart antennas will be able to differentiate between various mixed-up signals – like radio waves and WiFi signals – in the air and beam them back in an orderly fashion so to speak.
Low Latency – High Efficiency
5G will break down data and send it in smaller sizes to offer significantly reduced transmission times. Data will be sent with only a 1 millisecond delay instead of a 50 millisecond delay commonly found with 4G. With communication this fast, it’ll allow machines to talk to each other with practically no room for error. As Marcus Weldon the CTO of Alcatel Lucent comments, “up until now, we’ve designed the networks for people and their needs, and now we’re designing it for things.”
The Dangers Of 5G – 11 Reasons To Be Concerned
The USA is currently leading the way on 5G. At the June 2016 press conference where the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) head Tom Wheeler announced the opening up of low, mid and high spectrum’s. There was no mention of health effects whatsoever. But the dangers are real.
Thousands of studies link low-level wireless radio frequency radiation exposures to a long list of adverse biological effects, including:
. DNA single and double strand breaks
. oxidative damage
. disruption of cell metabolism
. increased blood brain barrier permeability
. melatonin reduction
. disruption to brain glucose metabolism
. generation of stress proteins
Let’s not also forget that in 2011 the World Health Organization (WHO) classified radio frequency radiation as a possible 2B carcinogen
More recently the $25 million National Toxicology Program concluded that radio frequency radiation of the type currently used by cell phones can cause cancer.
But where does 5G fit into all this? Given that 5G is set to utilize frequencies above and below existing frequency bands 5G sits in the middle of all this. But the tendency (it varies from country to country) is for 5G to utilize the higher frequency bands. Which brings it’s own particular concerns. Here is my review of the studies done to date – 11 reasons to be concerned.

Aan het eind van het artikel stond de mogelijkheid een reactie in te sturen. Ik heb de volgende ingestuurd:
In the 1998 ICNIRP Guidelines one can find upper limits for allowable radiation intensities of 10 W/m2 and field strengths of 61 V/m, in the frequency ranges from 10 to 300 and 2 to 300 GHz, respectively. In the guidelines for smartphones it can be found that these must be kept at distances of 5, 10 or 15 mm from our body in order not to exceed these upper limits. In www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm69ik_Qdb8 it is said (illustrated by measurements) that the upper limits are indeed violated when the smartphone is close to our body. At the higher 5G frequencies, say 30 GHz, the penetration depth of the radiation in our body is much less than the penetration depth at the 2G-4G GHz frequencies, so the heating in the near skin part of our body will become much higher and it will be more dangerous to keep a 5G higher-frequency smartphone close to our body, provided the same radiation intensities will be used at these higher frequencies. With respect to that I have a question: can anything be said about the required radiation intensities for 5G in comparison with those for the 4G (in order to get good transmission)?
