Federal Communications Commission Statement
This device complies with FCC Rules Part 15. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful interference.
• This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment causes harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by
doing one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user‘s authority to operate the equipment.
The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with
any other antenna or transmitter.
Operation on the 5.15-5.25 GHz frequency band is restricted for indoor use only. The FCC requires
indoor use for the 5.15-5.25 GHz band to reduce the potential for harmful interference to cochannel Mobile Satellite Systems. It will only transmit on 5.25-5.35 GHz, 5.47-5.725 GHz and 5.7255.850 GHz bands when associated with an access point (AP).

RF Exposure Information (SAR)
This device meets the government’s requirements for exposure to radio waves. This device is
designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF)
energy set by the Federal Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.
The exposure standard employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or
SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6 W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions accepted by the FCC with the EUT transmitting at the specified power level in different
channels.
The highest SAR value for the device as reported to the FCC is 1.18 W/kg when placed next to the
body.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this device with all reported SAR levels
evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this device is
on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid
after searching on FCC ID: xxxxxxxxx.

IC Warning Statement
The device could automatically discontinue transmission in case of absence of information to
transmit, or operational failure. Note that this is not intended to prohibit transmission of control or
signaling information or the use of repetitive codes where required by the technology.
The device for the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor usage to reduce potential for harmful
interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems; the maximum antenna gain permitted (for
device in the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5470-5725 MHz) to comply with the EIRP limit; and the
maximum antenna gain permitted (for devices in the band 5275-5850 MHz) to comply with the
EIRP limits specified for point-to-point and non point-to-point operation as appropriate, as stated
in section A9.2(3). In addition, high-power radars are allocated as primary users (meaning they have
priority) of the band 5250-5350 MHz and this radar could cause interference and/or damage to LELAN devices.
The Country Code Selection feature is disabled for products marketed in the US/Canada. For
product available in the USA/Canada markets, only channel 1-11 can be operated. Selection of
other channels is not possible.

RF Exposure information (SAR) - CE
This device meets the EU requirements (1999/519/EC) on the limitation of exposure of the general
public to electromagnetic fields by way of health protection.
The limits are part of extensive recommendations for the protection of the general public. These
recommendations have been developed and checked by independent scientific organizations
through regular and thorough evaluations of scientific studies. The unit of measurement for the
European Council’s recommended limit for mobile devices is the “Specific Absorption Rate” (SAR),
and the SAR limit is 2.0 W/Kg averaged over 10 gram of body tissue. It meets the requirements of
the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).
For next-to-body operation, this device has been tested and meets the ICNRP exposure guidelines
and the European Standard EN 62311 and EN 62209-2. SAR is measured with the device directly
contacted to the body while transmitting at the highest certified output power level in all
frequency bands of the mobile device.
Power Safety Requirement
Products with electrical current ratings up to 6A and weighing more than 3Kg must use approved
power cords greater than or equal to: H05VV-F, 3G, 0.75mm2 or H05VV-F, 2G, 0.75mm2.
