phones are everywhere. Their rapid rise from novelty
to necessity has depended in part on support from NIST.
NIST provides the wireless communications industry with
reference standards, materials data, calibrations, and
co-funding for the development of cutting-edge technologies.
from more than 100 companies are working with NIST to
speed development of standards for broadband wireless
connections for homes and businesses. NIST also develops
methods for measuring electromagnetic radiation emitted
by mobile phones and other consumer electronics.
