Electronic Noise Is Drowning Out the Internet of Things

Here is a perfect example of the ignorance surrounding the noise pollution on the so called smart grid.   The Noise pollution I am writing about is not understood or acknowledged by engineers because of ignorance of the reality that this problem exists and the authorities whom have had this issue brought to their attention are not enforcing the laws. Urban, suburban, rural…it is everywhere 24/7….. Sandaura

Electronic Noise Is Drowning Out the Internet of Things

Our increasingly connected world needs better protection against RF noise pollution

Believe it or not, there hasn’t been a systematic study of radio-frequency noise in the United States since the mid-1970s, when the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS), a part of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, last monitored federal use of the radio spectrum. By then, man-made electronic noise had been a problem for nearly half a century, having started with the inauguration of commercial radio transmissions. In 1934, the International Special Committee on Radio Interference was founded in Paris, and that same year a committee with the same mandate was established by the Institute of Radio Engineers, a forerunner of the IEEE. The noise problem grew with the use of electricity and the number of wireless systems, although many details have changed over time.
