The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

EU Directive 1999/5/EC - Compliance Information for the AIR-CAP1550 Series Lightweight IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n Outdoor Mesh Access Points
Declaration of Conformity with Regard to the EU Directive 1999/5/EC (R&TTE Directive)
Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request
This document contains compliance information for the Cisco AIR-CAP1550 Series Lightweight Outdoor Mesh Access Point that is relevant to the European Union and other countries that have implemented the EU Directive 1999/5/EC.
The information in this document is applicable to the Cisco 1550 Series Lightweight Outdoor Mesh Access Points that currently includes:
The 1550 Series dual-band mesh access points operate in the 2400- to 2483.5-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 and/or at reduced power levels. See the“National Restrictions” section for complete details.
This declaration is only valid for configurations (combinations of software, firmware and hardware) supported or provided by Cisco Systems for use within the EU. The use of software or firmware not supported or provided by Cisco Systems may result in the equipment no longer being compliant with the regulatory requirements.
Note The full declaration of conformity for this product can be found in the Declarations of Conformity and Regulatory Information section of the appropriate product hardware installation guide, which is available on Cisco.com.
The following standards were applied during the assessment of the product against the requirements of the Directive 1999/5/EC:
Note The 5-GHz equipment employs a Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) mechanism which is required for operation in the 5 GHz frequency range.
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.
Max Power Level
(EIRP) 1 (mW)
2.Dynamic Frequency Selection and Transmit Power Control is required in the 5250- to 5350-MHz and 5470- to 5725-MHz frequency range.
The following sections identify countries having additional requirements or restrictions than those listed in Table 1 .
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.
Pour la bande 2,4 GHz, la puissance est limitée à 10 mW en p.i.r.e. pour les équipements utilisés en extérieur dans la bande 2454 - 2483,5 MHz. Il n'y a pas de restrictions pour des utilisations dans d'autres parties de la bande 2,4 GHz. Consultez http://www.arcep.fr/ pour de plus amples détails.
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.
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 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).
The AIR-CAP1552E-E-K9, AIR-CAP1552C-E-K9, and AIR-CAP1552H-E-K9 are equipped with N-type antenna connectors to allow the use of the AIR-ANT2547V-N omnidirectional antenna with 4-dBi gain in the 2.4-GHz band and 7-dBi gain in the 5-GHz band.
The AIR-CAP1552I-E-K9 is equipped with internal omnidirectional antennas with 2-dBi gain in the 2.4-GHz band and 4-dBi gain in the 5-GHz band.
Depending on the country 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.
See the “National Restrictions” section to identify the regulatory limit applicable in your country.
The operating frequency in a Wireless LAN is determined by the access point. As such, it is important that the access point is correctly configured to meet the local regulations. See the “National Restrictions” section for the country specific operating frequency ranges.
The output power on the AIR-CAP1550 Series access points can only be changed using a Cisco Wireless LAN Controller, or the controllers on a Wireless Services Module (WiSM).
Note See the Cisco WLAN Controller Configuration Guide for your wireless LAN controller for more details on how to configure your access point using the web-browser interface.
Note Administrator privileges on your controller might be required in order to change access point settings.
The access point must be registered with your controller before you can make any configuration changes.
Follow these steps to change the 1550 series access point’s output power to meet local regulations using a controller:
Step 1 Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2800 or a later release.
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 and choose 802.11a/n or 802.11b/g/n under Access Points / Radios. A list of associated access points appears.
Step 5 Choose the desired access point from the displayed list and click Configure from the drop down arrow. The radio configuration page appears.
Step 6 Scroll to the Tx Power Level Assignment field, and click Custom.
Custom indicates that the radio output power is manually controlled by the Tx Power Configuration setting field.
Step 7 In the Tx Power Level field, select the appropriate power level setting (1 to 5).
Table 2 lists the corresponding conducted power levels for each of the controller power level settings.
Step 9 Close your Internet browser.
