NCC announces large-scale measurement, base station electromagnetic waves are safer than microwave ovens

(Central News Agency) The electromagnetic waves of the base stations always make people panic. In order to dispel the doubts of the Chinese people, NCC entrusted a third-party organization to conduct large-scale measurements for the first time. The research shows that the maximum value of the electromagnetic wave measurement results of Taiwan’s 4G/5G base stations is lower than the international safety standard. It is lower; the research team described it as safer than razors and microwave ovens.

The public has doubts about the safety of the base station’s electromagnetic waves, and incidents of public protests and dismantling of the base station are reported almost every year. In recent years, there have been incidents in Ganjingli, Hemei Township, Changhua County, Dayong Middle School, Gushan District, Kaohsiung City, and Zhuangwei Township, Yilan County. However, after the Ganjingli base station in Hemei Township, Changhua County, was cut off, public grievances arose, and later they demanded that it be built back.

The National Communications Commission (NCC) considered the concerns of the Chinese people about the electromagnetic waves of the base stations, and decided to entrust a third-party organization to conduct large-scale measurements of the electromagnetic waves of the base stations. security concerns.

The research team of Yunlin University of Science and Technology sampled and tested 34 4G/5G mobile broadband base stations in the northern, central, southern, eastern and outer island regions of the country, referring to the “Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Wave Detection Method in the Environment” (NIEA P203.92B) stipulated by the Environmental Protection Agency of the Executive Yuan )” to measure the intensity of radio frequency electromagnetic waves.

Project host, Professor Guo Wenzhong of Yunlin University of Science and Technology said that the maximum value of the measurement results is only 0.039% of the reference level value of electromagnetic wave exposure set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and the Environmental Protection Agency, which is lower than that of microwave ovens used at home. Home appliances such as razors and razors are safer. “Our safety value is very good, please rest assured.”

NCC member Wang Zhengjia explained the concept in the meeting. In fact, the farther away from the base station, the greater the mobile phone’s transmission power, because the transmission power of the mobile phone will be more laborious. If the number of base stations is larger and the density is higher, the mobile phone can quickly find nearby ones. The base station needs to emit less electromagnetic waves.

NCC officials said that the best service range of 4G base stations is about 600 meters to 1 kilometer, and 5G will be even smaller. Therefore, once the base station loses communication, it may affect thousands to tens of thousands of people if it is in an urban area; now the research results It shows that there is no doubt about the safety of the base station, and I hope that the people of the country can rest assured that they can coexist peacefully with the base station.


NCC: 20,000 more 5G micro-base stations will be built together with street lights and traffic lights

(Central News Agency) Telecom operators are actively deploying 5G networks. The National Communications Commission (NCC) estimates that as 5G becomes more and more popular, the operators must deploy 5G micro-base stations widely in the next step. The rough estimate will be at least 20,000. In the future, it will be implemented in the direction of micro-base rigs placed on traffic lights and street lights.

NCC held a press conference yesterday (13th), explaining that the measured results of the electromagnetic waves of Taiwan’s 4G/5G base stations are far below international safety standards, showing that the electromagnetic waves of the base stations are safe and sound.

NCC member Wang Zhengjia talked about the construction of base stations. He said that two years ago, Taiwan released the first wave of 5G spectrum. The number of units exceeds 35,000, and the radio population coverage rate has exceeded 94%.

Since most of the 5G services provided by telecom operators around the world adopt the Non-Standalone (NSA) networking method, that is to say, most of the current 5G base stations are networked together with 4G.

NCC officials pointed out that 5G base stations are mostly built together with 4G, but the coverage of 4G is larger than that of 5G. With the increasing number of 5G users, it is imperative for the industry to build 5G micro-base stations. It is roughly estimated that at least 20,000 base stations will be needed. The above amount can gradually make up for the areas not covered by the original base stations.

Officials revealed that they have discussed with the local government in the past, “can the micro base stations to be built in the future be built through street lights and signal poles at intersections?” Follow-up may be carried out in this direction.
