Italy

This product meets the National Radio Interface and the requirements specified in the National Frequency Allocation Table for Italy. Unless operating within the boundaries of the owner's property, the use of this 2.4 GHz Wireless LAN product requires a `general authorization'. Please check with http://www.sviluppoeconomico.gov.it/ for more details.

Questo prodotto è conforme alla specifiche di Interfaccia Radio Nazionali e rispetta il Piano Nazionale di ripartizione delle frequenze in Italia. Se non viene installato all'interno del proprio fondo, l'utilizzo di prodotti Wireless LAN a 2.4 GHz richiede una "Autorizzazione Generale". Consultare http://www.sviluppoeconomico.gov.it/ per maggiori dettagli.

Latvia

The outdoor usage of the 2.4-GHz band requires an authorization from the Electronic Communications Office. Please check http://www.esd.lv for more details.

Authorized External Antennas and Corresponding Power Levels

Cisco's 2.4-GHz wireless products have either integral antennas or external (dedicated) antennas.

Products With Integral Antennas

Products with integral antennas put on the EU market are configured during the manufacturing process to radiate at a maximum power level of 100 mW eirp.

Products with External Antennas

Depending on the type of antenna used, it might be necessary to reduce the output power of the equipment to result in a maximum radiated power of 100 mW EIRP.

Combinations of power levels and antennas resulting in a radiated power level above 100 mW EIRP are considered as not compliant with the directive and are not allowed for use within the European Community and countries that have adopted the European R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC or the CEPT recommendation Rec 70.03 or both.

The antennas listed in Table 2 were assessed together with the equipment against the requirements of the R&TTE directive. Therefore, the Declaration of Conformity referred to in this document is valid only for the antennas and corresponding power levels listed in Table 2 below and should be used as a baseline. You can also find the list of external antennas available for a specific product in the product's hardware configuration guide. See the "How to Access Technical Documents on Cisco.com" section on page 7 for instructions for downloading these guides from Cisco.com.
