DataQube’s podular facilities now fully ICNIRP compliant

DataQube’s podular edge data centre solutions are now fully compliant with ICNIRP standards, and compliant with all wireless communications technologies

DataQube has announced that its full portfolio of podular edge data centres can now be delivered fully certified by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). 

These services can also be made fully compliant with all wireless communications technologies, including 5G. In fact, DataQube’s edge data centre portfolio is one of the first on the market to be able to support all wireless communications protocols. 

Its minimal fibre requirements mean that DataQube’s edge facilities can be deployed in rural areas that are void of highspeed broadband. A single pod can deliver superfast broadband to multiple households, without requiring pre-installed fibre at street level. 

“Next generation networks like 5G, mmWave and satellite are pivotal to socio-economic advancement as they are poised to drive innovation in health and care, energy, transport, education and many other areas,” says Steve Pass, the COO of DataQube. 

“Our novel edge data centre makes these aspirations achievable by simplifying infrastructure requirements and delivering the required HPC performance needed for IoT and automation”   

About DataQube

DataQube is a technology infrastructure company, with data centre deployments situated across the globe. 

It has developed the world’s first podular data centres, which offer a portable, scalable, high-speed and high-performance solution, to help businesses and rural areas quickly enhance their cloud connectivity. 


Introduced by the EU commission and adopted by Ofcom in 2020, the ICNIRP is a legislation that works to ensure public health. It works to provide greater protection from electromagnetic fields, associated with the shorter frequency ranges used for 5G transmissions. 

Alongside this, the ICNIRP standards are designed to help to accelerate the rollout of 5G coverage at street level.
