Regulatory Compliance
Part 68 of FCC Rules Information
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and
the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the bottom of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, a product
identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this
number must be provided to the telephone company. A plug and
jack used to connect this CL1 to the premises wiring and
telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68
rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug, RJ11 USOC, is provided with this
product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular
jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be
connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone
line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming
call. In most, but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed
five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be
connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the
local telephone company. For products approved after July 23,
2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that
has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by
## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3).
For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label. If
this telephone equipment, the CL1, causes harm to the telephone
network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that
temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice isn’t practical, the telephone company will notify the
customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your
right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
