Electromagnetic fields emitted by my telecoms infrastructures


From telecoms infrastructures

In an age of increasing connectivity, where telecommunications infrastructures play a fundamental role in our daily lives, it is important to take into consideration the electromagnetic fields emitted by these networks.

Understanding and managing these electromagnetic fields is crucial to ensure the safety, compliance and social acceptability of telecoms infrastructures.

Exposure and compliance

Would you like to measure and monitor the levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by your infrastructures to ensure that they comply with the safety standards set by the competent authorities?

Network reception management

Would you like support in managing or coordinating the deployment of your infrastructure with the various players in the electromagnetic spectrum, so as to ensure uniform coverage across your territory and limit the impact of poor reception?

Acceptability and communication

Do you want to adopt a proactive and transparent approach to communicate and engage with your audiences in order to improve the social acceptability of your infrastructure?

Exem's response

To manage the challenges associated with the emission of electromagnetic waves by telecoms infrastructures, it is essential to measure and monitor exposure levels, ensure compliance with safety standards, optimise network coverage in coordination with stakeholders (local authorities, operators, broadcasters, equipment manufacturers, developers, etc.) and adopt proactive communication to promote social acceptability.


Measurement and control

We carry out regular assessments to measure the levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by your infrastructures, and implement control protocols to guarantee the compliance of your equipment.


Network homogeneity

We work with electromagnetic spectrum stakeholders to ensure harmonious management of infrastructure deployment, optimise coverage of territories, reduce areas of poor reception and minimise the impact on health.


Management policies

We take a transparent and proactive approach when it comes to communication and information to stakeholders about the measures we are taking to manage electromagnetic waves and thus respond to their concerns.


Our solutions in detail

Our portfolio of services enables us to provide the best possible support to project managers, project leaders and, more generally, anyone managing telecommunications equipment in implementing measures to supervise the reception and compliance of equipment (antennas, small cells, Wi-Fi, indoor mobile antennas, etc.).

Radio frequency measurements

We carry out accredited narrow-band measurements so that you can obtain details of the exposure emitted by frequency: measurement of the field strength by service as well as measurement of the service contribution and extrapolation (Orange, SFR, Bouygues, Free, 4G, 5G, etc.).

EMF Supervision

Our sensors for measuring electromagnetic waves in real time, installed both outside and inside infrastructures, ensure continuous monitoring of exposure levels. This real-time monitoring ensures compliance with the exposure limit values recommended by the European Union and the 1998 guidelines of the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection. It also makes it possible to identify areas at risk and implement corrective measures if necessary, with the aim of maintaining a safe environment.

EMF City Map

We use bicycles fitted with sensors to measure levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields. This mapping helps to optimise the location of infrastructure by identifying areas of high exposure, while addressing public health concerns.

Our mapping solution enables us to collect data on signal quality and reception strength in different areas to generate a visual representation of network coverage. It provides valuable information on areas of poor coverage or reception, helping stakeholders to identify areas for improvement and optimise network performance for better connectivity.

We can help you



Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions about exposure to electromagnetic waves emitted by telecoms infrastructures.

Several measures can be taken to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields. This can include designing and installing antennas with appropriate directionality to limit wave propagation in certain directions. In addition, network planning and optimisation techniques can be used to reduce the transmission power required while maintaining adequate coverage. Raising public awareness and informing the public about the safety measures taken can also contribute to greater social acceptability.

Regular assessments can be carried out by specialist laboratories to monitor exposure levels and ensure compliance. It is also advisable to use real-time measurement sensors to assess levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields. These sensors can be installed at various strategic locations on telecoms infrastructure sites to collect accurate data.

French regulations impose maximum limits on public exposure to electromagnetic fields, in line with the recommendations of the European Union and the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection. These limits are expressed in volts per metre (V/m) and vary depending on the radio installation. For example, for an FM radio aerial, the limit is 28 V/m, while for a mobile phone relay aerial, it varies from 36 to 61 V/m depending on the frequency band used.

Transparent communication is essential to inform the public. You can make information available on your website, including exposure measurement reports attesting your compliance and the measures taken to minimise the risks. Public meetings and information sessions can also be organised to respond to questions and concerns from the public.

Current scientific studies have not established a clear link between exposure to electromagnetic fields emitted by telecoms infrastructures that comply with safety standards and adverse effects on human health. Regulators rely on ongoing research and assessment to establish regulatory exposure limits to minimise any potential risk.

Operators and broadcasters play an essential role in the deployment of telecoms infrastructures. They are responsible for installing and managing the antennas, telecoms towers and other equipment needed to provide telecoms and broadcasting services. They must comply with safety standards, coordinate deployments with the relevant authorities, communicate with stakeholders (including local authorities) and respond to public concerns.

Operators and broadcasters can include the harmonious integration of installations into the landscape, the implementation of responsible site management policies, the continuous measurement of exposure levels, investment in research and development of new technologies as well as in studies of potential health effects, etc.
