Investigation of Electromagnetic Fields from LTE Base Station
Recently, the world has witnessed the rapid development in telecommunication industry and the increasing demand in the mobile data usages and applications. Due to these evolutions, the numbers of base stations are rapidly increased to meet the huge market demand. Consequently, the health risk due to the exposure of electromagnetic radiation from the base station has raised the concerns among the public. In this paper, an experiment is carried out to investigate the effect of electromagnetic radiation, in term of power level density emitted from the LTE base stations situated in Multimedia University, Cyberjaya campus, Malaysia. The radiated power levels are measured and compared to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) safety guidelines. In this work, the experimental results show that the maximum power level density emitted from the LTE base station is approximately 33.5867 μW/m2 at 1800 MHz, and 26.3343 μW/m2 at 2600 MHz respectively. The measured radiation levels are relatively lower (<1.0%) than the ICNIRP exposure limit of 9 W/m2 and 10 W/m2 at 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz.
