Can your products measure and block 5G?

Q - We are being threatened with the roll out of a 5G technology cell towers/wi fi emitters. My question: 
Do your meters measure this new frequency? 
Can your protection products can block 5G?

Our meters measure Radio Frequency up to the frequency of 8GHz dependenless of the generation of that technology.
5G is a nickname for faster, low latency, smaller size cell, wireless technologies. 
The frequency range of 5G can go up to 300 GHz. 
The mid frequency of up to 5GHz will most likely be used for communication between infustrature to handheld or fixed devices, while the upper band between 20GHz and 300GHz will most likely be used for fixed eye of site, point to point communication. 
Up to now, there is no technical standard for 5G.
What we can find on the market is a bunch of products and technologies that are trying to achieve the "5G vision" or trying to make use of the 5G hip, but their frequency is well below 8GHz.
Around the world we have tryouts and experiments of technologies that one day might be part of the 5G standard. 
For example, according to the 5G vision, in some cities in the USA and EU, mini or micro (small but still powerful) cellular cell antenna are being deployed in the cities. 
As far as I know these antennas are smaller and operating under the concept of small cells as in 5G, some of them are even 'Phased array" but most of them are still 3G(WCDMA) or 4G (LTE) based technology.  Even if some of these new deployments are 5G, they most likely use the mid 5G frequency band of between 3.5 GHz-4.2 GHz.
As far as I know there are no products on the market  right now, that are real 5G.
As far as I know there is no real 5G around where I am, so I can't say for sure the meter can measure t 5G technology. 
General saying, there should not be any problem using the CORNET ED88TPLUS or the ENV RD-10 to measure 5G devices and infrastructure if their emission is between 100MHz and 8000MHz.
The same goes for our personal(hats and Clothes) and home protection, as long as the emission's frequency is in between the frequency that the protection is able to block, it should work fine in 3G, 4G and 5G. 
Please see our meters:

Please see our Home protection product:
I hope this info helps.
Thanks and best regards
