The Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) has openly supported publishing two new international standards for 5G electric and magnetic fields (EMF).

AMTA is the national body representing the Australian mobile telecommunications industry.

AMTA CEO Louise Hyland says the new 5G mmWave testing standards are an important step in Australia’s roadmap for 5G technology.

“The possibilities for leveraging the 5G ecosystem as an important part of how we live and respond to the challenges of our time are limitless,” Hyland says.

“So, promoting public confidence and [confidence] in mobile networks, devices, and services using these new standards is crucial.

“A top priority for AMTA and its members is to ensure compliance with Australian safety standards; as part of that, AMTA remains committed to helping the government provide the latest compliance approaches based on international best practices incorporated into new regulations.

“We must continue to support a high level of public confidence in the health and safety protocols surrounding Australia’s mobile telecommunications networks, including 5G, and the public can rest assured that our members will continue to deploy their networks and operate by the latest safety standards and scientific analysis.”

A collaboration between the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE SA) Committee and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the standards are designed to provide a central platform for EMV compliance testing of all 5G mmWave devices.

“The new IEC/IEEE 63195 standards for 5G EMF are designed to meet the rapid advancements in mobile technology and help consumers gain confidence that 5G technology meets the latest EMF safety testing standards,” IEC President TC106 says Mike Wood.

“The new 5G EMF standard is at the heart of the IEC vision – IEC everywhere for a safer, more efficient world – demonstrating that the advanced expertise of IEC TC 106 is fundamental to the secure deployment of 5G technology,” IEC Secretary General Philippe Metzger says.

AMTA’s support for these standards comes after IDC recently discovered that spending on telecommunications and pay-TV services increased from $494 billion in 2020 to $505 billion in the APAC region in 2021.

Global spending also increased, reaching $1.566 billion in 2021, a 1.6% year-over-year increase.

The IDC says 2021 was marked by the rapid recovery of the global economy from the slump caused by COVID-19.

As a result, the IDC says there was additional growth in spending on telecommunications services, increasing the overall value of the global market slightly faster than initially forecast.

“AMTA values ​​and appreciates the work of the IEEE SA and IEC to match 5G technology to the highest security standards, and we look forward to working with government at all levels and our members to realize the full contribution of 5G to industries.” and communities,” Hyland adds.
