Question


Are Zebra access points compliant with ETSI EN 300 328 v1.8.1 and ETSI EN 301 893 v1.7.1?

Facts


 

Zebra access points have been tested and certified for use in European countries that follow the ETSI standards. Access points with older radio transceivers may not be compliant. The compliant and non-compliant access points as of this date are listed in this Knowledge Base article. The end customer has a network of deployed AP-6532 access points. He wants to purchase additional AP-6532 in 2015 to add to the network. However, Zebra has released a bulletin stating the AP-6532 –EU SKU will no longer be offered for sale after December 31, 2014.

Answer


 

The end customer should purchase a compliant access point such as the AP 7532.  To ensure the network meets the objectives of the ETSI standards ( Read More>>), the remaining access points in the network should be upgraded when practical. Consult the WiNG firmware Release Notes to determine if a firmware is compliant with the standard.

This note applies to access point model SKUs that end in a –EU.  This note does not apply to access point model SKUs that end in –WR or –US.
ETSI EN 300 328 v1.8.1 and ETSI EN 301 893 v1.7.1 has an effective date of December 31, 2014.  The following access point models will comply with the standards:

    AP 7532
    AP 7522
    AP 7502
    AP 8132
    AP 8163
    AP 8222
    AP 8232
    AP 6511
    AP 621
    AP 6521
    AP 6522
    AP 6562

The following access point model SKUs that end in a -EU will not comply with ETSI EN 300 328 v1.8.1 and ETSI EN 301 893 v1.7.1.  These access points will not be available for sale after December 31, 2014.  Do not install non-compliant firmware on existing APs in the market
