Welcome to the LEXNET project : Low EMF Exposure Networks

Over the past 30 years, wireless communications systems that are using electromagnetic fields (EMF), have been increasingly used. The versatile use of new mobile phones, and the development of home wireless networks, as well as the emergence of pervasive wireless systems, are strengthening this tendency.

To date, no adverse health effects have been established, although questions still exist. In order to respond to the public concern, some national or local authorities have recommended some practices and measures to minimise EMF exposure, but these actions focus mainly on cellular network base stations and access points. Since the exposure is induced by the downlink (from the network to the phone), but also from the uplinks (from the phone to the network), these actions do not correctly respond to the relevant questions and even can induce a rise of exposure.

17 leading telecommunications operators, vendors, research centers and academic institutions have launched the LEXNET project (Low EMF Exposure Networks), a research project supported by the European Commission under the FP7 workprogram, to develop effective mechanisms to reduce 50% (at least) of the public exposure to EMF, without compromising the quality of service.
