Electrosmog (EMF) is the collective term for all man-made electrical, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. Electrosmog is invisible, inaudible and odorless, but omnipresent. Examples of its sources are all kinds of domestic electrical installations, high-voltage power lines, induction heaters, computers, WiFi, anti-theft devices, cordless phones (DECT), mobile phones, baby intercoms, TV, radar, radio and television broadcast facilities, wireless communication, smart meters, intelligent housing and remote controlling.
Electromagnetic radiation is on the increase
As electric power consumption rises constantly and wireless communication technologies rapidly spread with the changes in work practices and social behaviour, the intensity and volume of radiation grows.
With global mobile data traffic expected to grow eight times by the end of 2023 there is a need for a more efficient technology with higher data rates, more capacity, higher security and spectrum utilization. Streaming, self-driving public transportation, surveillance and monitoring, autonomous cars, drones, security systems and real-time information require constant wireless access at high rates and large capacities without dead spots.
