A mobile virtual private network (mobile VPN or mVPN) provides
mobile phones with access to network resources and software
applications on their home network, when they connect via other
wireless or wired networks. Mobile VPNs are used in environments
where workers need to keep application sessions open at all
times, throughout the working day, as the user connects via
various wireless networks, encounters gaps in coverage, or
suspend-and-resumes their phones to preserve battery life. A
conventional VPN can't survive such events because the network
tunnel is disrupted, causing applications to disconnect, time out,
fail, or even the computing device itself to crash.

virtual private networks"

Product safety information
RF exposure
General statement on RF energy
Your phone contains a transmitter and a receiver. When it is ON,
it receives and transmits RF energy. When you communicate with
your phone, the system handling your call controls the power
level at which your phone transmits.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR)
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves
recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were
developed by the independent scientific organisation ICNIRP and
include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all
persons, regardless of age and health.
98
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/
kg and the highest SAR value for this device when tested at the
ear was 1.39 W/kg (1) and when tested near the body (at a distance
of 5 mm) the highest SAR value was 1.51 W/kg (2).
As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used
in other positions, such as on the body as described in this user
guide, see page 100 for more information.
SAR is measured utilising the device’s highest transmitting
power and where supported with multiple simultaneous
transmitters. The actual SAR of this device while operating
is typically well below that indicated above. This is due to
automatic changes to the power level of the device to ensure
it only uses the minimum power required to communicate
with the network.
Body worn operation
To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the phone
must be used with a minimum of 5 mm separation from the body.
Failure to observe these instructions could result in your RF
exposure exceeding the relevant guideline limits and may use
more power than necessary.
Limiting exposure to radio frequency (RF) fields
For individuals concerned about limiting their exposure to RF fields,
the World Health Organisation (WHO) provides the following advice
in Fact Sheet 193 Electromagnetic fields and public health: mobile
phones (October 2014)
The tests are carried out in accordance with[CENELEC EN50360] [IEC
62209-1].
The tests are carried out in accordance with[CENELEC EN50566] [IEC
62209-2].

99
Precautionary measures: Present scientific information does
not indicate the need for any special precautions for the use of
mobile phones. If individuals are concerned, they might choose
to limit their own or their children’s RF exposure by limiting the
length of calls, or using ‘hands-free’ devices to keep mobile
phones away from the head and body.
Further information on exposure to radio waves can be obtained
from the WHO http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/
fs193/en/
14 Regulatory information
