To characterize and evaluate the use of communication devices in the general population.
WP 2: Identification and characterisation of existing and future networks and systems that can be used for the uses identified in WP1
Current communicating systems use telecommunication networks in ways that are transparent to the user.
Knowledge of the power emitted by uplink (phone, tablet, PC) and downlink (base stations, Smallcell, Wifi access point, Femto) channels supporting the uses and networks identified in WP1 and WP2 is important for the evaluation of exposure associated with these uses.
The exposure induced by wireless communication systems depends on the power emitted by the systems, the communication protocols and the frequency bands used.
