<For Canada>
This device has been designed to operate with the WWAN
antenna having a maximum gain of 7.0 dB for the cellular band
and 3.5 dB for the PCS band. WWAN Antenna having a higher
gain is strictly prohibited per regulations of Industry Canada.
The Required antenna impedance is 50 ohms.
To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent
isotropically radiated power (EIRP) is not more than that required for successful communication.
<Utilisation au Canada>
Cet appareil est conçu pour opérer avec une antenne WWAN
(réseau étendu sans fil) dont le gain maximum est fixé à 7.0
pour la bande cellulaire et à 3.5 pour la bande de service de
communications personnelles (PCS). Les règlements d’Industrie Canada interdisent l’utilisation d’une antenne WWAN dont
le gain serait supérieur à cette limite. L’antenne doit avoir une
impédance de 50 ohms.
Afin de réduire le risque d’interférence radioélectrique aux
autres utilisateurs des bandes de fréquences, le type d’antenne
et son gain doivent être tels que la puissance isotrope rayonnée
équivalente (PIRE) n’est pas plus élevée que le niveau requis
pour assurer la communication.
