This device complies with Part 15 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.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a residential environment. This equipment generates, uses, and radiates radio frequency energy, and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur. If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to correct the interference by one of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from which the receiver is connected.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician.


Caution The Part 15 radio device operates on a non-interference basis with other devices operating at this frequency when using integrated antennas or those listed in Table B-1. Any changes or modification to the product not expressly approved by Cisco could void the user's authority to operate this device.


Caution Within the 5.15 to 5.25 GHz band (5 GHz radio channels 34 to 48) the U-NII devices are restricted to indoor operations to reduce any potential for harmful interference to co-channel Mobile Satellite System (MSS) operations.

Declaration of Conformity with Regard to the 1999/5/EC (R&TTE Directive)

This declaration is only valid for configurations (combinations of software, firmware, and hardware) provided and supported by Cisco Systems. The use of software or firmware not provided and supported by Cisco Systems may result in the equipment no longer being compliant with the regulatory requirements.

This device complies with the EMC requirements (EN 60601-1-2) of the Medical Directive 93/42/EEC.

For 2.4 GHz radios, the following standards were applied:

Radio: EN 300.328-1, EN 300.328-2

EMC: EN 301.489-1, EN 301.489-17

Safety: EN 60950

The following CE mark is affixed to access points with a 2.4 GHz radio:


Note This equipment is intended to be used in all EU and EFTA countries. Outdoor use may be restricted to certain frequencies and/or may require a license for operation. For more details, contact Cisco Corporate Compliance.



Note Combinations of power levels and antennas resulting in a radiated power level above 100 mW equivalent isotropic radiated power (EIRP) are considered as not compliant with the above mentioned directive and are not allowed for use within the European community and other countries that have adopted the European R&TTE directive 1999/5/EC or the CEPT recommendation Rec 70.03 or both. For more details on legal combinations of power levels and antennas, refer to the Appendix D, "Channels and Maximum Power Levels."


For 54 Mbps, 5 GHz access points, the following standards were applied:

Radio: EN 301.893

EMC: EN 301.489-1, EN 301.489-17

Safety: EN 60950

The following CE mark is affixed to the 54 Mbps, 5 GHz access points:

For AIR-RM20A (not supported on the AIR-LAP1232AG-A-K9)

For AIR-RM21A and AIR-RM22A

Declaration of Conformity for RF Exposure

The radio module has been found to be compliant to the requirements set forth in CFR 47 Sections 2.1091, and 15.247 (b) (4) addressing RF Exposure from radio frequency devices as defined in Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields. For the IEEE 802.11B antennas, AIR-ANT24120, AIR-ANT4121 and AIR-ANT1949 the equipment should be positioned more than 2 m (6.56 ft) from your body or nearby persons. For all other approved antennas the equipment should be installed more than 20 cm (7.9 in.) from your body or nearby persons.

The access point (with 5 GHz integrated antenna) must be installed to maintain a minimum 20 cm
(7.9 in.) co-located separation distance from other FCC approved indoor/outdoor antennas used with the access point. Any antennas or transmitters not approved by the FCC cannot be co-located with the access point antennas. The access point's co-located 2.4 GHz (2.2 dBi) and 5 GHz integrated antennas support a minimum separation distance of 10 cm (3.9 in.) and are compliant with the applicable FCC RF exposure limit when transmitting simultaneously.


Note Dual antennas used for diversity operation are not considered co-located.

Administrative Rules for Low-power Radio-Frequency Devices

Article 12

For those low-power radio-frequency devices that have already received a type-approval, companies, business units or users should not change its frequencies, increase its power or change its original features and functions.

Article 14

The operation of the low-power radio-frequency devices is subject to the conditions that no harmful interference is caused to aviation safety and authorized radio station; and if interference is caused, the user must stop operating the device immediately and can't re-operate it until the harmful interference is clear.

The authorized radio station means a radio-communication service operating in accordance with the Communication Act.

The operation of the low-power radio-frequency devices is subject to the interference caused by the operation of an authorized radio station, by another intentional or unintentional radiator, by industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) equipment, or by an incidental radiator.
