5g wireless networks have few health impacts, oregon state study using zebrafish model finds

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:




Findings from an Oregon State University study into the effects of radiofrequency radiation generated by the wireless technology that will soon be the standard for cell phones suggest few health impacts.Fifth generation or 5G wireless technology, which began being deployed worldwide in 2019, provides faster connectivity and more bandwidth, meaning higher download speeds.But because 5G technology is so new, little is known about the potential health effects from its radiofrequency radiation, which is higher than the current industry standard 4G. The Oregon State study begins to change that.

“Based on our study, we don’t think 5G radiation is that harmful,” said Subham Dasgupta, a postdoctoral fellow working in the lab of Robyn Tanguay at Oregon State. “It’s predominately benign.”Researchers conducted the research using embryonic zebrafish, a model organism often used to discover interactions between environmental stressors and biological systems. Zebrafish and humans have similar developmental processes and are similar on a genomic level, meaning zebrafish research can easily be applied to humans.In the study, published today in the journal PLOS ONE, the researchers exposed embryonic zebrafish for two days to 3.5 GHz radiofrequency radiation, the frequency typically used by 5G-enabled cell phones.

They found no significant …

Huawei to Request UK to Delay 5G Network Removal-The Times

huawei to request uk to delay 5g network removal-the times

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

(Reuters) – China’s Huawei Technologies has requested a meeting with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to work out a deal to delay its potential removal from the country’s 5G phone network, the Sunday Times newspaper reported on Sunday. The Chinese telecoms equipment maker is seeking to delay its removal from the from the country’s 5G telecoms networks until after elections in June 2025, in the expectation that the new government may reverse the decision, the newspaper reported. https://bit.ly/3iTYDRi Huawei will in return pledge to maintain its equipment in the UK, which is also used in the 2G, 3G and 4G networks, the report added. Britain granted Huawei a limited role in its future 5G networks in January, but ministers have since said the introduction of U.S. sanctions on the company means it may no longer be a reliable supplier.Johnson has faced intense pressure from the United States and some British lawmakers to ban the telecommunications equipment maker on security grounds.China’s ambassador to London, Liu Xiaoming, warned last week that getting rid of Huawei would send a “very bad message” to Chinese business.A government update on the Chinese company is expected to be published before …

Face Masks With 5G Antennas, The Latest Covid-19 Coronavirus Conspiracy Theory

If you are trying to download a cat video on your face mask, you may be waiting for a long time. After all, it’s a face mask, not a smartphone.
Yet, messages circulating on social media now are trying to somehow connect face masks with 5G. That’s 5G, as in the “fifth generation” technology standard for cellular networks, and not 5G as in $5000. As I’ve covered before for Forbes, conspiracy theories have already alleged that the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic is really the effects of 5G rather than a virus. Now, there are videos like the following claiming that the metal piece in a surgical mask is a 5G antenna:

Apparently the antenna is in the face mask not to help download cat videos, which is always of utmost importance, but to allow 5G to either track you or make you sick. Or both, depending on which specific conspiracy theory you believe. So what you thought was maybe a box …

Stanley Black & Decker’s “Manufactory” in Hartford, Connecticut, is the epicenter for its “smart factory” and workforce upskilling initiatives.Stanley Black & DeckerImagine a manufacturing plant in which all the production equipment is continually changing in response to market needs. Robots churning out widgets, for instance, would reconfigure themselves based on data coming in from all points of the widget supply chain, as well as sensors monitoring the factory itself. The result is a smart factory that’s more agile and autonomous than previous generations of automation.Also known as Industry 4.0, the smart factory runs on data and artificial intelligence, but connectivity forms the backbone of operations. The new fifth generation of mobile networks (5G) is a catalyst for this new industrial revolution because it offers much greater speed and bandwidth than previous networks, as well as low latency, or time required for data to travel between two points. 5G will work with and in some cases replace existing fixed, wired connections, making manufacturing more flexible and ready to implement innovations.  The connected factory5G could replace wired Ethernet as well as Wi-Fi and 4G LTE networks that connect devices in factories, but one 5G supplier is starting with the basics: powering mobile …

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G shown off from multiple angles in new video

samsung galaxy z flip 5g shown off from multiple angles in new video

Official-looking images of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G leaked last week and now we are looking at a video shared by leakster Evan Blass that shows off the Mystic Bronze variant of the foldable smartphone from multiple angles. You can check it out below.

pic.twitter.com/vdHgDADPUu— Evan Blass (@evleaks) July 10, 2020

The clip doesn’t include any specs of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G but thanks to TENAA we know the smartphone won’t come with any major changes, except the chipset. This was corroborated by XDA’s Max Weinbach who said the biggest difference between the 4G and 5G versions of the Galaxy Z Flip is the SoC – the former came with Snapdragon 855+ while the latter will arrive with the freshly announced Snapdragon 865+.

According to TENAA the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will pack a dual camera setup on the outside comprising one 12MP and one 10MP unit as opposed to the 12MP+12MP combo on its 4G counterpart, but citing publicly available information, Weinbach claims the 5G model will also pack two 12MP cameras on the outside but there’s a chance Samsung might be cropping the secondary 12MP sensor to 10MP.

So for the Z Flip 5G, the ONLY …

Huawei believes it can supply 5G hardware unaffected by White House sanctions to the UK for the next five years, sidestepping the expected conclusion of an emergency review on Tuesday next week.
The company has stockpiled 500,000 pieces of kit but fears a wider ban on its equipment will be unveiled to placate Conservative rebel MPs, who say the Chinese supplier represents a national security risk.
Downing Street indicated on Friday it was “very likely” that the culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, would make a statement to parliament on Tuesday after a technical review of the sanctions by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
The US ban prevents Huawei from using American microchips or any chips designed with American software. The NCSC is expected to conclude that Huawei kit will no longer be secure because it will have to rely on untested chips.
The Chinese company said it could divert 20,000 of its existing reserve for use in the UK, but is unclear whether there would be any point …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

5G is coming to automotive and other mission-critical applications with the 3GPP Release 16 … [+] standard.

Qualcomm, Tirias Research

Even as the world tries to move forward in fits and starts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the inexorable march of cellular communications standards presses on. An update to the 5G standard, Release 16 (Rel16), has just been released by the 3GPP, the governing body responsible for defining international cellular communications industry standards. 
The first phase of the 5G standard came with Release 15, foundational in nature and focused mostly on enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) use cases. Rel16, also referred to as 5G Phase 2, includes further eMBB support but also some much-awaited capabilities aimed at mission critical applications, as well as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Rel16 for Mission Critical Applications

Summary of the major enhancements in the second phase of 5G with the 3GPP Release 16 standard

3GPP

Rel16 includes several enhancements supporting Cellular-Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) communications – one of the most common examples of mission critical use cases. C-V2X includes vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P), and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications, all interactions being necessary for increased vehicular safety now but also critical to realize the vision of fully autonomous driving.
