Interference with Pacemakers and Other Medical Devices
Potential interference
Radio frequency energy (RF) from cellular devices can interact with some electronic devices. This is
electromagnetic interference (EMI). The FDA helped develop a detailed test method to measure EMI of implanted
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators from cellular devices. This test method is part of the Association for the
22
MultiConnect® rCell 100 MTR-LTE User Guide
SAFETY WARNINGS
Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) standard. This standard allows manufacturers to ensure that
cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators are safe from cellular device EMI.
The FDA continues to monitor cellular devices for interactions with other medical devices. If harmful interference
occurs, the FDA will assess the interference and work to resolve the problem.
Precautions for pacemaker wearers
If EMI occurs, it could affect a pacemaker in one of three ways:
Stop the pacemaker from delivering the stimulating pulses that regulate the heart's rhythm.
Cause the pacemaker to deliver the pulses irregularly.
Cause the pacemaker to ignore the heart's own rhythm and deliver pulses at a fixed rate.
Based on current research, cellular devices do not pose a significant health problem for most pacemaker wearers.
However, people with pacemakers may want to take simple precautions to be sure that their device doesn't cause
a problem.
Keep the device on the opposite side of the body from the pacemaker to add extra distance between the
pacemaker and the device.
Avoid placing a turned-on device next to the pacemaker (for example, don’t carry the device in a shirt or
jacket pocket directly over the pacemaker).
Notice regarding Compliance with FCC, EU, and Industry Canada
Requirements for RF Exposure
The antenna intended for use with this unit meets the requirements for mobile operating configurations and for
fixed mounted operations, as defined in 2.1091 of the FCC rules for satisfying RF exposure compliance. This device
also meets the European RF exposure requirements of EN 62311. If an alternate antenna is used, consult user
documentation for required antenna specifications.
Compliance of the device with the FCC, EU and IC rules regarding RF Exposure was established and is given with
the maximum antenna gain as specified above for a minimum distance of 20 cm between the devices radiating
structures (the antenna) and the body of users. Qualification for distances closer than 20 cm (portable operation)
would require re-certification.
Wireless devices could generate radiation. Other nearby electronic devices, like microwave ovens, may also
generate additional radiation to the user causing a higher level of RF exposure.

Failover mode enables the WAN with the highest priority as displayed on the WAN Configuration page. If the WAN
with priority 1 is disabled or a connection failure is detected, the WAN with priority 2 is automatically selected for
establishing connection to the Internet.
If Ethernet is used as WAN, the DHCP server must be disabled.

Editing Failover Configuration
The device can use the active or passive mode to monitor the Internet availability in WAN. The default condition is
active mode.
Active mode can be type ICMP (ping) or TCP. ICMP periodically pings the designated host at the specified interval.
TCP tries to make a connection to the designated host at the interval specified.
For both ICMP and TCP, if a response is not received, the device switches to the WAN with lower priority. The
device continues to ping the designated host at the interval specified for WAN with the higher priority and
switches back when the ping is successful. When passive mode is enabled, the device switches the WANs when the
network interface is down. The currently active WAN is displayed on the home page under the label WAN
Transport.

Configuring the Global Positioning System (GPS)
This GPS information applies only to the MTR models that support GPS including:
Model B08
Some routers have a built-in GPS receiver. If your router has a GPS receiver, the router can forward NMEA
(National Marine Electronics Association) sentences from the GPS receiver to a device connected to the router's
serial port. You can also send the GPS data over the network to a remote computer.
There are four areas of GPS configuration including: Server Configuration, Local Configuration, Client
Configuration and NMEA Configuration along with Current Position information.
Notes:
All enabled sentences are forwarded periodically using the interval specified in the NMEA Configuration
section. Before forwarding, the router adds an ID prefix and ID to each enabled NMEA sentence. If set, the
NMEA sentences available are those provided by the built-in receiver which are: GPGGA, GPGSA, GPGSV,
GPGLL, GPRMC, GPVTG.
You can simultaneously enable the TCP Server, TCP/UDP client, and serial port dump.

Using Telnet to Communicate with the Cellular Radio
Your router comes with an integrated cellular radio. You can use this cellular radio directly without using any
router functions. To do so, you must use re-director software on your computer. This software creates a virtual
serial port that allows your computer to communicate with the integrated cellular radio over IP using telnet. To
communicate directly with the cellular modem:
1.
2.
3.
From the Web Management interface, go to Cellular > Telnet Radio Access.
Check Enabled.
To enable raw mode, check Raw. The program transfers data between the computer and cellular modem
without any processing.
4. To enable the Auto Dialout Login feature, check Login. The Auto Dialout port is the Telnet port used by
the re-director software on your computer to communicate to the cellular modem integrated on the
router.

SETTING UP THE FIREWALL
Chapter 9 – Setting Up the Firewall
Defining firewall rules
The router's firewall enforces a set of rules that determine how incoming and outgoing packets are handled. By
default, all outbound traffic originating from the LAN is allowed to pass through the firewall, and all inbound traffic
originating from external networks is dropped. This effectively creates a protective barrier between the LAN and
all other networks. For additional information, see:
Adding Port Forwarding Rules
Adding Input Filter Rules
Adding Output Filter Rules
Advanced Settings
Inbound Forwarding Rule

DEFINING TUNNELS
Chapter 11 – Defining Tunnels
Setting Up GRE Tunnels
Tunneling allows the use of a public network to convey data on behalf of two remote private networks. It is also a
way to transform data frames to allow them to pass networks with incompatible address spaces or even
incompatible protocols. Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) is a tunneling mechanism that uses IP as the
transport protocol and can be used for carrying many different passenger protocols.
The tunnels behave as virtual point-to-point links that have two endpoints identified by the tunnel source and
tunnel destination addresses at each endpoint. Configuring a GRE tunnel involves creating a tunnel interface, which
is a logical interface, then configuring the tunnel endpoints for the tunnel interface. To set up GRE tunnels:

Configuring Network-to-Network Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
The device supports site-to-site VPNs via IPsec tunnels for secure network-to-network communication. Both tunnel
endpoints should have static public IP addresses and must be able to agree on the encryption and authentication
methods to use. Setting up an IPsec tunnel is a two-stage negotiation process. The first stage negotiates how the
key exchange is protected. The second stage negotiates how the data passing through the tunnel is protected. For
endpoints that do not have public static IP addresses, additional options may help such as NAT Traversal and
Aggressive Mode.
By default, based on the encryption method chosen, the device negotiates ISAKMP hash and group policies from a
default set of secure algorithms with no known vulnerabilities. This allows flexibility in establishing connections
with remote endpoints. There is an ADVANCED mode that provides a way to specify a strict set of algorithms to
use per phase, limiting the remote endpoint's negotiation options.

The default set of Hash Algorithms is: SHA-1, SHA-2, and MD5.
The default set of DH Group Algorithms is: DH2(1024-bit), DH5(1536-bit), DH14(2048-bit), DH15(3072-bit),
DH16(4096-bit), DH17(6144-bit), DH18(8192-bit), DH22(1024-bit), DH23(2048-bit), and DH24(2048-bit).

OpenVPN Tunnels
OpenVPN is an open-source software application that implements virtual private network (VPN) techniques for
creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access
facilities. You can use and setup OpenVPN tunnels with this device.
To use OpenVPN, you must first install an OpenVPN application along with an easy-rsa tool and configure OpenVPN
on your computer. Then you must also generate the certificates for the OpenVPN server and client before
configuring the device.
To configure OpenVPN client and server on this device the following files are required:
The CA PEM file or CA certificate (.crt)
The Diffie Hellman PEM file (.pem)
The Server Certificate to be used by the device endpoint (.crt)
The Server/Client Key to be used by the device endpoint (.key)
Note: When you configure OpenVPN server and client make sure both sides use the same settings, and certificates.
Configuration 1: OpenVPN Tunnel with TLS Authorization Mode (Device only)

Upgrading Firmware
Before upgrading: reboot the device.
Upgrade the device's firmware to the latest version. You can download firmware upgrades from the MultiTech
website or update your firmware automatically through MultiTech's DeviceHQ™ system.
For added security, you have the option to use Signed Firmware Validation when upgrading from version 4.1 and
higher. This authentication method prevents attempts to load invalid or damaged firmware files in order to defeat
possible tampering. If you check this option, the module does not load any firmware that Multitech did not
digitally sign.
When downgrading to an older version of firmware or upgrading from versions lower than 4.1, you must uncheck
this option.
If the Signed Firmware Validation is unchecked, the system runs an MD5 checksum automatically to check
integrity of your target firmware file. If the MD5 checksum fails, the system generates an error saying the file
integrity checks failed on the target file.
First, check your firmware version. Refer to the upper right corner of your configuration software window. To
upgrade the firmware on your device:

Before you upgrade your firmware, save your present configuration as a backup. Otherwise, see
DeviceHQ.
Go to the MultiTech website, locate the firmware upgrade file you want for your device, and download
this file to a known location.
Select Administration > Firmware Upgrade. The Administration: Firmware Upgrade pane opens.
If you want further validation of your upgrade file, you can check Signed Firmware Validation option
(checked by default). This works for upgrading from versions 4.1 or higher. (If unchecked, the system
automatically runs an MD5 checksum.)

REACH Statement
Registration of Substances
After careful review of the legislation and specifically the definition of an “article” as defined in EC Regulation
1907/2006, Title II, Chapter 1, Article 7.1(a)(b), it is our current view that Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. products would
be considered as “articles.” In light of the definition in § 7.1(b) which requires registration of an article only if it
contains a regulated substance that “is intended to be released under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions
of use,” our analysis is that Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. products constitute nonregisterable articles for their intended
and anticipated use.
Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC)
Per the candidate list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) published October 28, 2008 we have reviewed
these substances and certify the Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. products are compliant per the EU “REACH”
requirements of less than 0.1% (w/w) for each substance. If new SVHC candidates are published by the European
Chemicals Agency, and relevant substances have been confirmed to be greater than 0.1% (w/w), Multi-Tech
Systems, Inc. will provide updated compliance status.
Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. also declares it has been duly diligent in ensuring that the products supplied are compliant
through a formalized process which includes collection and validation of materials declarations and selective
materials analysis where appropriate. This data is controlled as part of a formal quality system and will be made
available upon request.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Statement
WEEE Directive
The WEEE Directive places an obligation on EU-based manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and importers to takeback electronics products at the end of their useful life. A sister directive, ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous
