|Publication Date:||1 November 2008|
The present document applies to the following Short Range Device major equipment types:
• Generic Short Range Devices, including alarms, telecommand, telemetry, data transmission in general, etc.
• Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID).
• Radiodetermination, including detection, movement and alert applications.
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in the permitted frequency bands within the 1 GHz to 40 GHz range as specified in table 1:
• either with a Radio Frequency (RF) output connection and dedicated antenna or with an integral antenna;
• for all types of modulation;
• with or without speech.
Table 1 shows a list of the frequency bands as designated by the European Commission Decisions on Short Range Devices [i.6], [i.7] and the CEPT/ERC Recommendation 70-03 [i.1] as known at the date of publication of the present document.
NOTE 1: Table 1 represents the most widely implemented position within the European Union [i.6], [i.7] and the CEPT countries [i.1], but it should not be assumed that all designated bands are available in all countries.
NOTE 2: In addition, it should be noted that other frequency bands may be available in a country within the frequency range 1 GHz to 40 GHz covered by the present document. See the European Commission Decisions on Short Range Devices [i.6], [i.7] and the CEPT ERC Recommendation 70-03 [i.1] as implemented through National Radio Interfaces (NRI) and additional NRI as relevant.
NOTE 3: On non-harmonized parameters, national administrations may impose certain conditions such as the type of modulation, frequency, channel/frequency separations, maximum transmitter radiated power, duty cycle, and the inclusion of an automatic transmitter shut-off facility, as a condition for the issue of an individual or general licence, or as a condition for the issuing of Individual Rights for use of spectrum or General Authorization, or as a condition for use "under licence exemption" as it is in most cases for Short Range Devices.
The present document covers fixed stations, mobile stations and portable stations.
Applications using Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology are not covered by the present document.
The present document does not require measurements for radiated emissions below 25 MHz.
