ETSI EN 301 893 Harmonized Standard For RF Testing
As a leader in RF regulatory compliance testing, Keystone Compliance recognizes the requirements needed for wireless radio manufacturers. Meeting the ETSI, FCC, and other wireless testing specifications can be challenging. Not only do we understand the challenges, but we help guide companies through the process. Keystone Compliance actively engages in the TCB Council, ANSI C63 Main Committee, and ANSI C63 wireless working groups.
Our wireless test engineers work with clients to quickly develop appropriate and concise test plans. Keystone takes pride in providing the peace of mind that all of your wireless testing needs will be met. We tailor each test plan to individual customer needs minimizing unnecessary costs and over-testing. Lastly, Keystone is continually developing partnerships in GMA and RF exposure testing. These strategic partnerships allow us to meet customer needs beyond our scope of accreditation.
Summary of Intentional Radiator Compliance Testing
This wireless regulatory compliance document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for 5 GHz wireless access systems including RLAN equipment. This intentional radiator document also describes spectrum access requirements to facilitate spectrum sharing with other equipment.
5 GHz RLAN bands – This term can be described as the total frequency range that consists of the 5 150 MHz to 5 350 MHz and the 5470 MHz to 5 725 MHz sub-bands.
Channel Access Engine – This is a mechanism that determines when a transmission attempt is permitted.
Contention Window – This is the main parameter that determines the duration of the backoff procedure.
Frame Based Equipment – Equipment where the transmit/receive structure has a periodic timing with a periodicity equal to the fixed frame period.
Scope of ETSI EN 301 893 Wireless Testing
The technical requirements of this wireless testing certification apply under the environmental profile for the operation of the equipment. This profile is to be described by the manufacturer.
Where multiple combinations of radio equipment and antenna are specified, each combination is recommended to comply with all the technical requirements of this document.
Limits for this EMC test apply to the system as a whole. This means that the antenna gain of the integral or dedicated antenna has to be taken into account. As well as the additional gain in the case of smart antenna systems.
In the case of multiple channels within the same sub-band, the total RF output power of all channels in that sub-band should not exceed specified limits. TPC is not required for channels whose nominal bandwidth falls completely within the band 5 150 MHz to 5 250 MHz.
Keystone Compliance Provides Expert RF Device Testing
Our EMC regulatory compliance testing lab strives to give our customers more time and energy on product development instead of testing. In addition to ETSI EN 301 893 RF wireless lab testing, Keystone has a full scope of expertise including simultaneous transmitters, licensed radios, and pre-approved radio modules. Keystone Compliance can accommodate fixed, mobile and portable devices of all sizes.
