SWISSCOM ITRW-2014.001 - SHIELDING EFFECTIVENESS OF GLASS PANES (700 MHZ - 6 GHZ)

The ITrW-2014.001 standard is a technical standard developed by Swisscom wich specifies frequency bands for measuring transmission through a window, including the frequencies below:

Frequency Bands
700 MHz Band 67, 68
800 MHz Band 20
900 MHz Band 8
1500 MHz Band 32, 51
1800 MHz Band 3
2100 MHz Band 1
2600 MHz Band 7
3500 MHz Band 42
3700 MHz Band 43
5000 MHz Band 46, 47

This standard outlines the requirements for measuring the shielding effectiveness of a building's exterior against electromagnetic radiation.

The standard specifies the requirements for measuring the transmission loss through glass panes and the attenuation of radio signals by different types of building materials.

Specifically this standard ensure that buildings provide adequate protection against electromagnetic interference from external sources, such as mobile phone base stations or radio transmitters.

The standard covers various aspects of the measurement process, including test equipment, measurement procedures, and reporting requirements.

Compliance with this standard is essential for ensuring the safety and reliability of telecommunication services provided within the building. This standard is used for measuring radio wave transmission through a window, which is applicable to different types of vehicles, including trains, buses, and trams.
