Traditionally, the assessment of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure due to radio -frequency (RF) communications has focused on individual users, separately considering the exposure induced by personal devices, and that caused by network elements [I]. However, various studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between power emitted by users' devices and that received from base stations [2]. In order to provide a more accurate means to estimate the population exposure, the low-EMF exposure networks (LEXNET) project has proposed a novel metric, coined exposure index (EI), which is associated with a wireless telecommunication network, considering large areas and prolonged periods of time. In addition, the EI combines both the exposure induced by personal devices with that coming from network access elements, leading to new key performance indicators (KPIs) usable for network planning and operation.
