5G Networks – Everything You Will Want to Know
What is a 5G Network?
5G is the next generation of wireless. 1G allowed us to use cellphones. 2G allowed for texting. 3G allowed internet access. 4G sped up our connections be it phone, text or internet. But, the 4G network is just about maxed out. The 5G network will allow for a 1000x more traffic and be 10x faster than 4G. To answer the question of what is a 5G network, we need to look at the 5 technologies that will be used to implement 5G.
Everything You Need to Know about 5G from IEEE Spectrum and Amy Nordrum and Kristin Clark
To help us out, the IEEE Spectrum Magazine, produced a great video that explains the 5 parts of this technology. It’s pretty complex, but they’ve done a wonderful job simplifying it.
Summary of the Technologies
- Millimeter Waves – These are higher frequency waves than what is used now for WiFi. Currently, mobile devices use frequencies below 6GHz, but millimeter waves are broadcast between 30-300 GHz. Millimeter waves do not travel through obstacles and can be absorbed by foliage and rain.
- Small Cells – are portable miniature base stations
- Massive MIMO – stands for multiple-input multiple output. MIMO will allow dozens of transmitters per base station to send and receive data. 4G base stations now have 12 antennas (8 to send, 4 to receive data). The prediction is that it will increase the capacity of mobile networks by a factor of 22 or greater. So many signals might cause “collisions”, so the next technology is designed to handle this issue.
- Beamforming – is like “air traffic control” for the 5G networks. It will route signals the most efficient way to get to their destination, getting around obstacles that will stop the signal.
- Full Duplex– today’s transmitters can only transmit and receive information on a frequency channel by taking turns. this technology will allow sending and receiving data to happen simultaneously.
When will 5G come to you?
Don’t expect to see this until the early 2020’s. It will most likely start in larger cities and then fan out from there to less populated areas.
Should we be concerned about the health effects of a 5G network in our neighborhood?
Our bodies are electric. Numerous scientists have shown that the body is not simply just a mass of organs, cells and bones. As early as 1941, Albert Scent-Gyorgyi, MD, suggested that organisms receive and transmit information through liquid crystal semiconductors that functioned as a single system to run the body. Subsequent research has proven him correct! In 1970, Ling Wei, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, stated that a nerve axon is an electrical transmission line and its membrane is an ionic membrane. In other words, our body communicates via electrical impulses. More research has simply revealed more details about the intrinsic electrical nature of our bodies.
The concern we have is that no one knows exactly what these frequencies will do to any living organism. How will it affect our own precise electrical systems? Will it produce a hugely saturated environment of electromagnetic radiation?
In the video, we are told that the millimeter waves can’t get around obstacles and building and are absorbed by rain and plants? Does this mean that if we are growing vegetables, for example, that the millimeter wave and the resulting EMF from that wave, will go right into our plants? Do you want a tomato that has been doused with EMF? How will this affect agriculture? Will it affect the bees? Will it affect fruit trees?
And most importantly, how will it be handled by your immune system? Will it overwhelm it?
We will share information about the 5G networks as we receive it. Meanwhile, please consider getting protection from your current EMF exposure wear a BioElectric Shield.
