Internal Modem Compliancy
The Notebook PC with internal modem model complies with JATE (Japan), FCC
(US, Canada, Korea, Taiwan), and CTR21. The internal modem has been approved
in accordance with Council Decision 98/482/EC for pan-European single terminal
connection to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). However due
to differences between the individual PSTNs provided in different countries,
the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional assurance of successful
operation on every PSTN network termination point. In the event of problems you
should contact your equipment supplier in the first instance.
Overview
On 4th August 1998 the European Council Decision regarding the CTR 21 has
been published in the Official Journal of the EC. The CTR 21 applies to all non
voice terminal equipment with DTMF-dialling which is intended to be connected
to the analogue PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).
CTR 21 (Common Technical Regulation) for the attachment requirements for
connection to the analogue public switched telephone networks of terminal
equipment (excluding terminal equipment supporting the voice telephony
justified case service) in which network addressing, if provided, is by means of
dual tone multifrequency signalling.

Network Compatibility Declaration
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the Notified Body and the vendor:
“This declaration will indicate the networks with which the equipment is designed
to work and any notified networks with which the equipment may have interworking difficulties.”
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the user: “This declaration will
indicate the networks with which the equipment is designed to work and any
notified networks with which the equipment may have inter-working difficulties.
The manufacturer shall also associate a statement to make it clear where network
compatibility is dependent on physical and software switch settings. It will also
advise the user to contact the vendor if it is desired to use the equipment on
another network.”
Up to now the Notified Body of CETECOM issued several pan-European approvals
using CTR 21. The results are Europe’s first modems which do not require
regulatory approvals in each individual European country.
Non-Voice Equipment
Answering machines and loud-speaking telephones can be eligible as well as
modems, fax machines, auto-dialers and alarm systems. Equipment in which the
end-to-end quality of speech is controlled by regulations (e.g. handset telephones
and in some countries also cordless telephones) is excluded.

Interference 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.

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 does cause 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 one or more of the following
measures:
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

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 ferquency (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 values for this device, as reported to the FCC, are 1.183 W/kg for
T100T and 0.80 W/kg for T100TAM 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/eot/ea/fccid after searching on FCC ID:

France Restricted Wireless Frequency Bands
Some areas of France have a restricted frequency band. The worst case maximum
authorized power indoors are:
•
10mW for the entire 2.4 GHz band (2400 MHz–2483.5 MHz)
•
100mW for frequencies between 2446.5 MHz and 2483.5 MHz
NOTE: Channels 10 through 13 inclusive operate in the band 2446.6 MHz to 2483.5
MHz.
There are few possibilities for outdoor use: on private property or on the private
property of public persons, use is subject to a preliminary authorization procedure
by the Ministry of Defense, with maximum authorized power of 100mW in the
2446.5–2483.5 MHz band. Use outdoors on public property is not permitted.
In the departments listed below, for the entire 2.4 GHz band:
•
Maximum authorized power indoors is 100mW
•
Maximum authorized power outdoors is 10mW
