We are requiring that an MBAN transmitter not operate in the 2,360- to 2,390-MHz band unless it is able to receive and comply with a control message that notifies the device to limit or cease operation in the band.
MBAN transmitters [must] comply with the [existing] MedRadio rules and maintain a frequency stability of [+ or -]100 ppm of the operating frequency over the ambient environmental temperature range: 1) 25[degrees]C to 45[degrees]C in the case of MBAN transmitters and 2) 0[degrees]C to 55[degrees]C in the case of MBAN control transmitters.
Comments from a study performed by NIST to determine how radio waves propagated into and out of 12 large buildings help to explain why MBAN transmitters must only be used within a healthcare facility if operating in the 2,360- to 2,390-MHz band.
Clearly, because interference with existing AMT use is a concern, operating MBAN transmitters within a building helps mitigate the risk by attenuating the signal.
445-GHz test frequency corresponded to the MBAN 2,360- to 2,400MHz band but was used for only three of the buildings.
The study results are directly applicable to MBAN interference, but to appreciate the wide variation in the NIST data, it's important to remember the purpose of the study.
For MBAN applications, the NIST results show that the orientation of a healthcare facility relative to a nearby AMT receiver makes a difference.
The company's interest in MBAN deliberations is understandable given its involvement in the implanted medical device market.
MBANs are low-cost wearable sensors that could allow clinicians to view vital signs for a patient wherever they are--from hospitals to emergency vehicles to the home.
MBANs could significantly enhance quality and access to patient care, while supporting reduced costs.
