The measure was adopted in the spring in Marseille and Nantes to accompany the beginnings of commercial exploitation of 5G: it now comes into force in Paris. In the 8th arrondissement of the capital, the ANFR has deployed sensors intended to measure and collect data on exposure to waves.
« Contribute to the initiative launched by the City of Paris to reflect on the impacts of 5G », This is one of the objectives displayed by the ANFR (Agence Nationale des Frequences) which has set up measurement sensors in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. These probes will make it possible to accompany, and potentially frame, the beginnings of commercial exploitation of 5G by measuring the waves emitted. The data collected is intended to be analyzed to estimate “global public exposure“. They are also accessible in real time, we learn from the press release. shared this November 20 by the ANFR on its official website.
Three sensors for the moment, installed in the 8th arrondissement
For the ANFR, this deployment is part of the “as part of its monitoring missions of public exposure to electromagnetic waves“. It is set up in collaboration with the city of Paris and currently concerns only three broadband sensors manufactured by the Toulouse laboratory EXEM.
The measurements have been carried out about ten times a day since November 13, we read, and on various frequencies ranging from 80 MHz to 6 GHz. Enough to cover the waves emitted by “FM radio, digital terrestrial television, Wi-Fi and all mobile phone technologies», Explains the Agency.
The ANFR indicates that it has installed its sensors at a height, nearly 100 meters from an antenna which should soon emit in 5G. The measurements made by these probes must take place for respective durations of 6 minutes, every two hours, in order to collect data day and night and “detect exposure fluctuations ”.The data gleaned can be viewed in real time since November 20 at this address.
