The most significant exposure, as has been seen through metrics discussed earlier in this book, is subject to the uplink from mobile terminal devices that are transmitting electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in proximity to the user, or other individuals that are in close proximity to any wireless device. Exposure from the downlink, on the other hand, is substantially less. Support of low-exposure mobile networks therefore warrants the need to design and implement user terminal radios in such a way that they will not radiate EMFs for unnecessary lengths of time, with excessive levels of transmit power or in undesired directions. Before discussing the technologies that can be used to reduce exposure from a mobile terminal radio, it is first useful to categorise the practical ways in which exposure from a mobile user terminal can be measurably reduced.
