ELECTRICAL SAFETY AND EMISSIONS STANDARDS
This product meets the following standards.
U.S. Federal Communications Commission Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the 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 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 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.
FCC Caution: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's
authority to operate this equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.
Radiation Exposure Statement: This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an
uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20cm between the radiator & your
body.
This transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
The availability of some specific channels and/or operational frequency bands are country dependent and are firmware programmed at
the factory to match the intended destination. The firmware setting is not accessible by the end user.

in order to prove presumption of conformity with the essential requirements of the R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC:
EN 60950-1: 2006
Safety of Information Technology Equipment
EN 50385: 2002
Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of radio base stations and fixed terminal stations for wireless telecommunication
systems with the basic restrictions or the reference levels related to human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields
(110MHz - 40 GHz) - General public
EN 300 328 V1.7.1 (2006-10)
Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Wideband transmission systems; Data transmission equipment
operating in the 2,4 GHz ISM band and using wide band modulation techniques; Harmonized EN covering essential requirements under
article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive

Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standard for radio equipment
and services; Part 17: Specific conditions for 2,4 GHz wideband transmission systems.
This device is a 2.4 GHz wideband transmission system (transceiver), intended for use in all EU member states and EFTA countries,
except in France and Italy where restrictive use applies.
In Italy the end-user should apply for a license at the national spectrum authorities in order to obtain authorization to use the device
for setting up outdoor radio links and/or for supplying public access to telecommunications and/or network services.
This device may not be used for setting up outdoor radio links in France and in some areas the RF output power may be limited to 10
mW EIRP in the frequency range of 2454 – 2483.5 MHz. For detailed information the end-user should contact the national spectrum
authority in France.

Appendix B: Radio Bands
Allied Telesis’s AT-WNP300N IEEE802.11b/g/n 1T2R Wireless Fast PCI adapter is capable of operating in
the 2.4GHz (IEEE 802.11b/g/n).
IEEE 802.11 n standard provides a major improvement in the speed at which data can be transferred over a
wireless network. The amount of data being passed over most networks is increasing with many more large
files, including photos, video clips (and videos), etc. being transferred.
IEEE 802.11 n standard uses Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) exploiting multipath propagation; that
increases the data rate by using a technique known as spatial division multiplexing. The data is split into a
number of spatial streams and these are transmitted through separate antennas to corresponding antennas
at the receiver. Increasing the spatial streams you get a greater utilization of the available bandwidth.
