William Webb William is a Director at Webb Search Consulting, a company specialising in providing the highest level of advice in matters associated with wireless technology and regulatory matters.
He is also CEO of the Weightless SIG, the standards body developing a new global M2M technology. He was President of the IET – Europe’s largest Professional Engineering body during 14/15.
He was one of the founding directors of Neul, a company developing machine-tomachine technologies and networks, which was formed at the start of 2011 and subsequently sold to Huawei in 2014 for $25m.
Prior to this William was a Director at Ofcom where he managed a team providing technical advice and performing research across all areas of Ofcom’s regulatory remit.
He also led some of the major reviews conducted by Ofcom including the Spectrum Framework Review, the development of Spectrum Usage Rights and most recently cognitive or white space policy. Previously, William worked for a range of communications consultancies in the UK in the fields of hardware design, computer simulation, propagation modelling, spectrum management and strategy development. William also spent three years providing strategic management across Motorola’s entire communications portfolio, based in Chicago.
William has published 14 books, over 100 papers, and 18 patents. He is a Visiting Professor at Surrey and Southampton Universities, an Adjunct Professor at Trinity College Dublin, a Board member of Cambridge Wireless, a member of the Science Advisory Council at DCMS, other oversight Boards and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the IEEE and the IET. In 2015.
The 5G Myth
He has written a book called the 5G Myth which can be download here : http://www.webbsearch.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/5G-Myth-Conclusions.pdf
According to Scientists for Wired technology.
Quite simply, 5G is an over-hyped “bait and switch” tactic by the Wireless Industry to deploy 4G/LTE so–called “Small Cell” cell phone towers everywhere. “Small Cells”are just a marketing/branding lie because “Small Cells” are full-power cell phone towers that the Industry wants to deploy much too close to people and other living organisms in residential neighborhoods — as close as 10-15 feet from 2nd story windows.
Some have suggested that 5G will be whatever interesting developments happen from 2018 onwards. There is much political capital expended in claiming that 5G will be deployed early in a country. MNOs and Governments will simply claim from 2018 onwards that they have 5G even though all that has been deployed is evolved 4G. For all the debate, 5G could be a label, not a technology.
End users will be told that they now have 5G even though they have not changed their handsets nor received any improvements in service. Or alternatively, in the case where 5G is the label applied to the introduction of IoT, consumers may be told that 5G is not about their handset but about the ability to connect their devices. In the US, the term 5G might be applied to fixed wireless deployments, with “5G to the home:. Given the confusion around what 5G is, this second “label whatever we have as 5G: approach could be used in Europe and the US alongside the first “limited millimeter wave deployment” approach happening in Asia Pacific.
This is the chilling observation: these planning documents for the recently installed 4G Palo Alto Small cells, show that even though the RF/MW radiation calculations were made for 6 watts of input power, the actual input power for each small cell antenna is 300 to 500 Watts and the “associated equipment” power supply cabinet is 17.5 cubic feet — one for each antenna!
Similar documents for a 2017 Verizon 4G Small Cell deployment in Weston, MA state that each antenna outputs 1,257 Watts of Effective Radiated Power (ERP), a significant RF/MW radiation exposure. These military-grade RF/MW radiation exposures do not belong in residential zones not matter what over-the-rainbow promises are being made about 5G by those who wish to profit for 4G/5G Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) installations everywhere.
As SB.649 contains no language for real-time monitoring of the levels of RF/MW radiation and no warning or detection systems if the RF/MW radiation reaches hazardous levels, then the equipment is already in place to easily increase the power input from 6 watts to 500 watts, which constitutes a Microwave Radiation weapon on every block in downtown Palo Alto — not unlike weapons the Federal Government has already designed and deployed.
