To address the recent public concerns related to the proliferation of Wi-Fi technology, Industry Canada staff performed measurements of radio frequency RF field measurements in an Industry Canada boardroom located in Aurora, Ontario. Sternke understood the criteria could provide a framework for continuously improving processes throughout the district. The program NetStumbler 14 was installed on a laptop to identify the Wi-Fi access points in the area. Industry Canada has adopted Health Canada’s guideline for the purpose of protecting the general public from RF overexposure. AP1 was installed on the ceiling with the antenna located at approximately 2. May Spectrum Management and Telecommunications Report.

Many consumers, businesses, and public and private institutions install Wi-Fi access points on their premises. These Wi-Fi access points typically consist of one or more low-power transmitters installed at ceiling level or on tabletops, which are used by individuals to gain Internet access through standard Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as laptops.
Recognition at this level is provided to organizations that are outstanding examples of quality enterprises in Wisconsin, and that can serve as role models for others. Measurements were taken at several points in the room and at various distances from the Wi-Fi access points, including those where higher levels of RF exposure are typically reported. Under this authority, the Department has adopted Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 SC6 guideline for the purpose of protecting the general public from radio frequency RF overexposure.
Case Study – Deschidere
Description of Figure 1. These access points typically consist of one or more low-power transmitters installed at ceiling level or on tabletops, which are used by individuals to gain Internet studt through standard Wi-Fi-enabled-devicessuch as laptops.
The measurements were based on 24 laptops and two wireless access points, or routers, used in a situation designed as a worst-case scenario, which involved downloads of a very large file, such as a video file, as well as the use of interactive applications among several computers, as would be found in a school setting.
Recognition at this level is provided to organizations that demonstrate progress in constructing sound and noteworthy processes. Also in picture left to right: The Wi-Fi access points and Wi-Fi-enabled laptops used during this case study can be found in Table 2 and Table 3, respectively.
After submitting applications for the Baldrige Award in andthe district was awarded a site visit for its application. The software provided information on the signal strength caxe each Wi-Fi access point. Description of Figure 5.
Radiocommunication, including the technical aspects related to broadcasting, falls under the responsibility of Industry Canada, which has the power to establish standards, rules, policies and procedures. In addition, the Wi-Fi access points selected for this study were operating at higher power compared with most of the Wi-Fi devices currently available on the Canadian market.
This measurement was carried out at the location found to exhibit the highest RF exposure level during the initial scanning of the boardroom.
Table 1 lists the equipment for RF measurement that was used during the Wi-Fi measurement case study, including the equipment used during the laboratory testing for radiated emission levels.
In Canada, Wi-Fi systems may operate at 20133 of Figure 3. The temperature within the boardroom was approximately 20 o C with low humidity. The measurement locations within the boardroom are represented in Figure 4, and a photo of the boardroom setup is presented in Figure 5.
The little engine known as PSD began its journey toward the Baldrige Award a decade ago when a member of its school board gave Sternke a copy of the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence.
The measurements were performed on November, in an Industry Canada office located in Aurora, Ontario see Figure 3. The wireless devices that were studied operate at higher power than most Wi-Fi devices currently available in Canada.

Additional details about the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program are available at www. Given the recent public concerns related to the proliferation vase Wi-Fi technology, the goal of this case study was to obtain RF exposure levels from multiple access points and Wi-Fi-enabled devices in an indoor environment, and to assess compliance with the SC6 limits.
Executive Summary Many consumers, businesses, and public and private institutions such as schools, hospitals and libraries install Wi-Fi access points on their premises. All measurements of RF exposure were well below the SC6 limits for uncontrolled environments. Therefore, the results of this study are likely higher than would typically be observed in equivalent setups in public and private environments.

As part of its ongoing monitoring of wireless devices for compliance with regulatory specifications, Industry Canada conducted an extensive series of tests to measure RF exposure from the use of Wi-Fi devices in a simulated classroom setting.
Case Study – Prezentari
These additional Wi-Fi access points were all operating in the 2. Industry Canada found that the aggregated RF exposure levels are well below the SC6 limits at this indoor location. However, the majority of Wi-Fi devices currently on the Canadian market operate at lower power e.
