Depiction of how pulsed microwaves will be employed in homes has alarmed health advocates who say the graphic does not show the people being affected.
The graphic is on the website of Remcom, a company that shows how microwaves impact with a variety of surfaces. The new 5G (fifth generation) technology only operates over a short range, requiring almost room-by-room installation.
Joe Esposito, spokesperson for EMF Safety Network, said there is a palpable danger from “untested 28GHz radiation blasting from millions of new hidden antennas and tuned-up ‘smart’ meters.”Wi-Fi and radiation health advocates say the Remcom graphic does not show the people who will be in the rooms nor indicate possible negative health effects.
This is “a corporate free-for-all, with oversight eliminated,” he said. It is "an internet of everything with hundreds of billions of microchippable products. Everywhere and everything... and eventually, everyone.”
“All wireless is not compatible with human life,” he added.
The Remcom newsroom in State College, Pa,, staffed by marketing director Stefanie Lucas, has been asked to address the issue.
Remcom’s release is as follows
Wireless InSite’s diffuse scattering model for 5G millimeter wave channels reveals how paths interact with a variety of surfaces and the impact on signal power.
Remcom announces diffuse scattering prediction in the latest release of Wireless InSite®, its site-specific radio propagation software for the analysis of wireless communication systems. This update greatly improves simulation accuracy for millimeter wave systems being developed for 5G, WiGig, and other emerging technologies.
Wireless InSite simulates the detailed multipath of large numbers of multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) channels while overcoming the increased level of computations required for traditional ray tracing methods.
As 5G technology forces expansion into higher frequencies in the millimeter wave spectrum, the diffuse scattering model further increases precision by revealing how paths interact with a variety of surfaces and structures and how signal power is affected by these interactions. Key effects such as impact on complex impulse response and increased cross-polarization of received signals may be visualized.
Key capabilities include:
- Innovative ray-tracing allows scattering from any interaction along a ray path
- Three scattering options support normal, forward and backscatter
- Accurate polarization captures co- and cross-polarization effects
- Handling of relative phase supports MIMO arrays
The diffuse scattering model is available in the professional and MIMO versions of Wireless InSite.
SF Chronicler Raps Telecom “Power Grab”
The San Francisco Chronicle, in a June 28 editorial, accused AT&T, Verizon and other telecom companies of a “brazen cellphone power grab” in their quest to remove from communities the power to say where cellphone transmitters can be placed.
Wendy Mesley of Canadian Business News hosted a 22-minute segment March 24, 2017 showing that most Canadians carry cellphones next to their bodies and are not aware of advice to do otherwise.
MIMO is an antenna technology for wireless communications in which multiple antennas are used at both the source (transmitter) and the destination (receiver). The antennas at each end of the communications circuit are combined to minimize errors and optimize data speed.
WiGig™ expands the Wi-Fi® experience for virtual reality, multimedia streaming, gaming, wireless docking, and enterprise applications requiring high speed, data-intensive connections, according to Wikipedia.
It allows Wi-Fi devices to access the uncongested 60 GHz frequency band with wide channels to transmit data efficiently at multi-gigabit per second speeds. Users benefit from expanded capacity and focused transmission between devices to reduce interference, even in crowded environments.
