Digital Transmission Systems (DTSs)
DTSs include systems that employ digital modulation techniques resulting in spectral characteristics
similar to direct sequence systems. The following applies to the bands 902-928 MHz and 2400-2483.5
MHz.
(1) The minimum 6 dB bandwidth shall be 500 kHz.
(2) The transmitter power spectral density conducted from the transmitter to the antenna shall not be
greater than 8 dBm in any 3 kHz band during any time interval of continuous transmission. This power
spectral density shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.4(4), (i.e. the power
spectral density shall be determined using the same method as is used to determine the conducted
output power).
For DTSs employing digital modulation techniques operating in the bands 902-928 MHz and
2400-2483.5 MHz, the maximum peak conducted output power shall not exceed 1W. Except as
provided in Section 5.4(5), the e.i.r.p. shall not exceed 4 W.
As an alternative to a peak power measurement, compliance can be based on a measurement of the
maximum conducted output power. The maximum conducted output power is the total transmit power
delivered to all antennas and antenna elements, averaged across all symbols in the signalling alphabet
when the transmitter is operating at its maximum power control level. Power must be summed across
all antennas and antenna elements. The average must not include any time intervals during which the
transmitter is off or transmitting at a reduced power level. If multiple modes of operation are
implemented, the maximum conducted output power is the highest total transmit power occurring in
any mode.
(5) Fixed point-to-point systems in the bands 2400-2483.5 MHz and 5725-5850 MHz are permitted to
have an e.i.r.p. higher than 4 W provided that the higher e.i.r.p. is achieved by employing higher gain
directional antennas and not higher transmitter output powers. Point-to-multipoint systems,2
omnidirectional applications and multiple co-located transmitters transmitting the same information are
prohibited from exceeding an e.i.r.p. of 4 W.
IV
(6) Transmitters may operate in the band 2400-2483.5 MHz, employing antenna systems that emit
multiple directional beams simultaneously or sequentially, for the purpose of directing signals to
individual receivers or to groups of receivers, provided that the emissions comply with the following:
(i) Different information must be transmitted to each receiver.
(ii) If the transmitter employs an antenna system that emits multiple directional beams, but does not
emit multiple directional beams simultaneously, the total output power conducted to the array or arrays
that comprise the device (i.e. the sum of the power supplied to all antennas, antenna elements, staves,
etc., and summed across all carriers or frequency channels) shall not exceed the applicable output
power limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4). However, the total conducted output power shall be
reduced by 1 dB below the specified limits for each 3 dB that the directional gain of the
antenna/antenna array exceeds 6 dBi. The directional antenna gain shall be computed as the sum of
10 log (number of array elements or staves) plus the directional gain of the element or stave having the
highest gain.
(iii) If a transmitter employs an antenna that operates simultaneously on multiple directional beams
using the same or different frequency channels, the power supplied to each emission beam is subject
to the applicable power limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4). If transmitted beams overlap, the
power shall be reduced to ensure that their aggregate power does not exceed the applicable limit
specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4). In addition, the aggregate power transmitted simultaneously on
all beams shall not exceed the applicable limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4) by more than 8
dB.
(iv) Transmitters that transmit a single directional beam shall operate under the provisions of sections
5.4(2), 5.4(4) and 5.4(5).
5.5 Unwanted Emissions
In any 100 kHz bandwidth outside the frequency band in which the spread spectrum or digitally
modulated device is operating, the RF power that is produced shall be at least 20 dB below that in the
100 kHz bandwidth within the band that contains the highest level of the desired power, based on
either an RF conducted or a radiated measurement, provided that the transmitter demonstrates
compliance with the peak conducted power limits. If the transmitter complies with the conducted power
limits based on the use of root-mean-square averaging over a time interval, as permitted under Section
5.4(4), the attenuation required shall be 30 dB instead of 20 dB. Attenuation below the general field
strength limits specified in RSS-Gen is not required.
The measurement procedure defined in Annex A of RSS-247 shall be used to verify the compliance to
the e.i.r.p. at different elevations.

1.2 Product Description
Cost-effective Wireless Solution with Superior Performance
IFS, WMC251 is designed to provide a highly-stable, better performance and cost-effective wireless solution in
outdoor wireless deployment. With the same transmission power, it offers better significant range and excellent
throughput than those of the traditional 802.11g wireless device. Via the embedded 12dBi dual-polarization
(vertical and horizontal) directional antenna, it provides good diversity coverage and better noise immunity effect,
thus heightening the performance of a long-distance, outdoor connectivity even though the environment is
flooded with many 2.4GHz wireless equipment.
Designed for Various Requirements
The WMC251 is dedicatedly designed for WISP solution that provides CPE users with Internet access via the
WISP provider in rural areas.
Besides, it caters to various wireless communication connectivity (AP / Client /
WDS PtP / WDS PtMP / WISP), thus meeting users’ application requirements.
Advanced Security and Rigorous Authentication
The WMC251 supports WEP, WPA / WPA2, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK wireless encryptions, the advanced
WPA2-AES mechanism and 802.1X RADIUS authentication, which can effectively prevent eavesdropping by
unauthorized users or bandwidth occupied by unauthenticated wireless access. Furthermore, any users are
granted or denied access to the wireless LAN network based on the ACL (Access Control List) that the
administrator pre-established. In addition, with the multiple-SSIDs feature, you can set up different wireless
networks. The WMC251 can therefore serve as a virtual access point for segmented networks tailored to any
industrial need.
Flexible and Reliable Outdoor Characteristics
The WMC251 is definitely suitable for such applications as IP surveillance, backhaul link of building to building
and backbone of public service. Additionally, the self-healing/schedule reboot capability keeps connection alive

OUTDOOR INSTALLATION WARNING
!
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS:
LIVES MAY BE AT RISK! Carefully observe these instructions and any special instructions that are included with the
equipment you are installing.
CONTACTING POWER LINES CAN BE LETHAL. Make sure no power
lines are anywhere where possible contact can be made. Antennas, masts,
towers, guy wires or cables may lean or fall and contact these lines. People
may be injured or killed if they are touching or holding any part of
equipment when it contacts electric lines. Make sure that equipment or
personnel do not come in contact directly or indirectly with power lines.
The horizontal distance from a tower, mast or antenna to the nearest
power line should be at least twice the total length of the mast/antenna combination. This will ensure that the mast will not
contact power if it falls either during installation or later.
TO AVOID FALLING, USE SAFE PROCEDURES WHEN WORKING AT HEIGHTS ABOVE GROUND.
 Select equipment locations that will allow safe, simple equipment installation.
 Don’t work alone. A friend or co-worker can save your life if an accident happens.
 Use approved non-conducting lasers and other safety equipment. Make sure all equipment is in good repair.
 If a tower or mast begins falling, don’t attempt to catch it. Stand back and let it fall.
 If anything such as a wire or mast does come in contact with a power line, DON’T TOUCH IT OR ATTEMPT TO
MOVE IT. Instead, save your life by calling the power company.
 Don’t attempt to erect antennas or towers on windy days.
MAKE SURE ALL TOWERS AND MASTS ARE SECURELY GROUNDED, AND ELECTRICAL CABLES CONNECTED TO
ANTENNAS HAVE LIGHTNING ARRESTORS. This will help prevent fire damage or human injury in case of lightning, static
build-up, or short circuit within equipment connected to the antenna.
 The base of the antenna mast or tower must be connected directly to the building protective ground or to one or more
approved grounding rods, using 1 OAWG ground wire and corrosion-resistant connectors.
 Refer to the National Electrical Code for grounding details.
IF A PERSON COMES IN CONTACT WITH ELECTRICAL POWER, AND CANNOT MOVE:

DON’T TOUCH THAT PERSON, OR YOU MAY BE ELECTROCUTED.

Use a non-conductive dry board, stick or rope to push or drag them so they no longer are in contact with electrical
power.
Once they are no longer contacting electrical power, administer CPR if you are certified, and make sure that emergency
medical aid has been requested.
