1 Staying on top of FCC regulations: how the latest changes affect in-building coverage Kevin Persing Regional Sales Manager, Axell Wireless

2 Agenda Our agenda for the next hour: Introduction A necessary change How to obtain your FCC registration number Concerns, conclusion and recommendations Q&A

3 Who are we? A global developer and manufacturer of DAS and wireless coverage solutions Part of Cobham plc a global technology giant with $3B annual revenue Providing solutions for cellular, public safety and rail applications Our history spans 40 years Our focus is quality and technological innovation

4 Where are we? Customers in over 150 countries Including 170 mobile operators across the globe 16 offices worldwide Circa 250 employees

5 Latest ABI research reveals Axell Wireless is no.1 in the world for Innovation when it comes to in-building wireless We are now ranked no.3 globally overall Our market share continues to grow

6 Agenda Our agenda for the next hour: Introduction A necessary change How to obtain your FCC registration number Concerns, conclusion and recommendations Q&A

7 A necessary change Class B band selective amplifiers, amplify all channels within the band pass window. Including wanted and un-wanted channels It requires system integrators and installers to consider the potential adverse effects of the increased noise floor on PLMR systems, and establish additional emission limits to reduce the interference potential of signal boosters Fire code enforcement for public safety radio coverage adding BDA s is a concern for the macro system Registration of Class B products is needed to know where to look when problems arise. Potential fines exist of $100,000 per violation

8 The FCC NPRM Starting March 1, 2014, all Industrial Signal Boosters sold and marketed in the United States must meet the FCC s new rules The process has changed for amplifier certifications, so all prior certifications became invalid. This created delays in FCC approvals Added additional emphasis on the integrity of installed systems and the installer qualifications Created technical qualifiers for the signal boosters to public safety grade compliant

9 Public safety signal boosters (Part 90) FCC distinguishes between two classes of signal boosters: Class A signal boosters channel-selective. Must have pass-band per channel no larger than 75 KHZ (sufficient to accommodate group delay requirements ) Class B signal boosters Block or band selective boosters Axell and any Brand X Band Pass repeaters are Class B signal boosters Axell digital repeaters can be classified as either Class A or Class B depending on the bandwidth of the selected digital filter Most Axell VHF and UHF and some 700/800 digital repeaters are Channel selective and considered Class A Limit noise impact to the macro Axell band-selective product, BSR 3308, is a Class B Axell D-MBR 700/800 product could be either based on how the amplifiers are configured

10 Labelling of public safety signal boosters

11 Public Safety Deployment rules of signal boosters (S.B) Part (d) The installer is held accountable for the deployment rules Signal booster must not be used to extend PLMRS stations normal operating range ERP per channel not to exceed 5 W Class B Signal booster must be deployed only in fixed locations as of Class B Signal booster must be registered in the FCC database Good engineering practice must be used to avoid interferences

12 Public Safety Deployment rules of signal boosters (S.B) cont. Part (d) In general ERP of intermod should not exceed -30dbm in 10khz BW ERP of noise must not exceed -43 dbm in 10 khz BW ERP of noise 1 MHZ outside the pass band must not exceed -70 dbm in 10 KHZ BW Require system integrators and installers to consider the potential adverse effects of the increased noise floor on PLMR systems and establish additional emission limits to reduce the interference potential of signal boosters The pass of Class B - Signal booster must not encompass both cellular and public safety except for indoor DAS

13 Agenda Our agenda for the next hour: Introduction A necessary change How to obtain your FCC registration number Concerns, conclusion and recommendations Q&A

14 Registration System for Class B Signal Boosters On February 20, 2013, the FCC released a Report and Order that included a requirement for new and existing Class B signal boosters to be registered with the FCC: Creates a permanent record of all Class B signal boosters Licensees can search online for signal booster installations Licensees and signal booster operators are required to register existing Class B signal booster installations with the FCC by November 1, After November 1, 2014, operation of an existing, unregistered Class B signal booster will be unauthorized and subject to enforcement action. Any new Class B signal booster installed after November 1, 2014 must be registered prior to operation.

19 Agenda Our agenda for the next hour: Introduction A necessary change The various FCC parts dealing with signal boosters How to obtain your FCC registration number Concerns, conclusion and recommendations Q&A

20 Who is responsible? 1. Integrator? 2. Building Owner? 3. Licensee? Concerns, conclusions and recommendations How did the FCC notify people of the change? How will enforcement work post November 2014? 1. When? 2. How?

21 Cellular Signal boosters: Concerns, conclusions and recommendations The rules for consumer boosters are significantly changed For industrial boosters Axell must only attach the proper labels Installers need to confirm compliance Part 90 Signal Boosters Must Register ALL Class B by November 2014 or face potential Fines (up to $100,000 per location) Make sure that all installed boosters after January 2014 meet the labeling requirements
