Scope

The information in this document is applicable to the Cisco 1000 Series Lightweight Access Points that include AIR-AP1010-E-K9, AIR-AP1020-E-K9 and AIR-AP1030-E-K9.

The dual-band equipment (2.4- and 5- GHz) operates in the 2400- to 2483.5-MHz, the 5150- to 5350-MHz and the 5470- to 5725-MHz frequency range.

National regulations may require that operations be limited to portions of the frequency ranges identified above or at reduced power levels or both. See the "National Restrictions" section on page 4 for complete details.

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


Note The full declaration of conformity for this product can be found in the Declaration of Conformity and Regulatory Information section of the appropriate hardware installation guide, which is available on Cisco.com. See the "Obtaining Documents from Cisco.com" section on page 10.


The following standards were applied during the assessment of the product against the requirements of the Directive 1999/5/EC:

Radio: EN 301 893 and EN 300 328

EMC: EN 301 489-1 and EN 301 489-17

Safety: EN 60950 and EN 50385


Note The 5-GHz equipment employs a Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) mechanism which is required for operation in the 5-GHz frequency range.



Note In order to meet the different regulatory power limits as well as the Transmit Power Control (TPC) requirement, the equipment has different user-selectable power levels. Devices should always be configured to the lowest possible power level. See the "Changing Output Power" section on page 7 for instructions on how to change the output power settings.


CE Marking

For the Cisco AIR-AP1010-E-K9, AIR-AP1020-E-K9 and AIR-AP1030-E-K9, the following CE mark and class-2 identifier are affixed to the equipment and its packaging:

National Restrictions

In the majority of the EU and other European Countries, the 2.4- and 5-GHz bands have been made available for the use of wireless LANs. Table 1 provides an overview of the regulatory requirements in general applicable for the 2.4- and 5-GHz bands.

Later in this section you will find an overview of countries in which additional restrictions or requirements or both are applicable.

The requirements for any country may evolve. Cisco recommends that you check with the local authorities for the latest status of their national regulations for both the 2.4- and 5-GHz wireless LANs.

1 Dynamic Frequency Selection and Transmit Power Control is required in the 5250 to 5350-MHz and 5470 to 5725-MHz frequency range.


Denmark

In Denmark, the band 5150 - 5350 MHz is also allowed for outdoor usage.

France

For 2.4 GHz, the output power is restricted to 10 mW EIRP when the product is used outdoors in the band 2454 - 2483,5 MHz. There are no restrictions when used in other parts of the 2,4 GHz band. Check http://www.arcep.fr/ for more details.

Italy

This product meets the National Radio Interface and the requirements specified in the National Frequency Allocation Table for Italy. Unless this wireless LAN product is operating within the boundaries of the owner's property, its use requires a "general authorization." Please check 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 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.


Note Although Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, and Liechtenstein are not EU member states, the EU Directive 1999/5/EC has also been implemented in those countries.



Note The regulatory limits for maximum output power are specified in EIRP. The EIRP level of a device can be calculated by adding the gain of the antenna used (specified in dBi) to the output power available at the connector (specified in dBm).


Antennas

Products with Integral Antennas

AIR-AP1010-E-K9

The AIR-AP1010-E-K9 is a dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz) access point that has 6 dBi integral antennas which cannot be removed or which are not user accessible. Nevertheless as the regulatory limits are not the same throughout the EU, users may need to adjust the conducted power setting for the radio to meet the EIRP limits applicable in their country or region.

The maximum conducted power settings for each band and for each of the applicable regulatory limits are given in Table 2. See the "National Restrictions" section on page 4 to obtain the applicable regulatory limit in your country.

Products with dedicated antennas

AIR-AP1020-E-K9 and AIR-AP1030-E-K9

The AIR-AP1020-E-K9 and AIR-AP1030-E-K9 are equipped with antenna connectors to allow the use of dedicated antennas (which are external to the equipment) for both the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz antennas.

Table 3 lists the 2.4-GHz antennas that can be used by these products while Table 4 lists the 5-GHz antennas that can be used. All antennas where assessed together with the equipment against the requirements of the R&TTE directive.

Depending on the country and the environment of use (indoor versus outdoor), a different regulatory limit might be applicable. It is therefore the responsibility of the end user to select a power level that, together with the antenna, results in an EIRP (radiated power) level that is below the applicable limit.

The maximum power setting for each of the antennas and for each of the applicable regulatory limits are given in Table 3 and Table 4. See the "National Restrictions" section on page 4 to identify the regulatory limit applicable in your country.

Operating Frequency

The operating frequency in a wireless LAN is determined by the access point. It is important that the access point is correctly configured to meet the local regulations. "National Restrictions" section on page 4 for the country specific operating frequency ranges.

Changing Output Power

The output power on the 1000 series access points can be only be changed using a Cisco 2600 or 4400 series wireless LAN controller, or the controllers on a Wireless Services Module (WiSM).


Note See the Cisco wireless LAN controller configuration guide for your wireless LAN controller for more details on how to to configure your access point using the web-browser interface.


The access point must be registered with your controller before you can make any configuration changes. Follow these steps to change the access point output power.


Step 1 Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Windows XP (pack 1 or higher) or Windows 2000 (service pack 4 or higher with Internet Explorer 6.0 (service pack 1 or higher).

Step 2 Enter https://IP address (where IP address is the controller's IP address) in the browser address line and press Enter. A user login screen appears.

Step 3 Enter the username and password and press Enter. The controller's summary page appears.


Note The username and password are case-sensitive.


Step 4 Click Wireless to access all the access points.

Step 5 Under Access Points, click either 802.11a Radios or 802.11b/g Radios to access the Radios page (see Figure 1).

Figure 1 Radios Page

This page shows all the 802.11.a or 802.11b/g access point radios that are joined to the controller.

Step 6 Click Configure for the access point for which you want to modify the radio configuration. The Cisco APs > Configure page appears (see Figure 2).

Figure 2 Cisco APs > Configure Page

Step 7 To assign a transmit power level to the access point radio, choose Custom for the Assignment Method under Tx Power Level Assignment and choose a transmit power level from the drop-down box (see Table 5).

The drop-down box shows five power level settings. For the EU, only three power level settings exist for the 5-GHz radio and only two for the 2.4-GHz radios. Other settings are equal to the lowest available power level for the respective radio.

The transmit power level is assigned an integer value instead of a value in mW or dBm. Table 5 shows the power levels (in dBm) for each of the settings (1 through 5).
