Video Length: 60 minutes.

About the Webinar

Wireless and Risk Management

Presented by Steven Ferguson

Directive 2014/53/EU includes provisions to address risk management and requires that the file include this analysis.  If using a harmonized standard or Notified Body (NB), the risk analysis remains a necessary function and must be present in the technical file.  This class reviews the various topics associated with wireless device approval and how to manage risk mitigation.  A general approach to documenting the risk analysis included.  The review goes beyond the minimum elements specified in the directive to address other matters integral to the overall performance of the device. 

Presenter

Steven Ferguson is Executive V.P. at Washington Laboratories, Ltd (WLL) and has been working in EMC, Safety, MIL-STD, Nuclear, Energy and related compliance engineering and test for over 35 years at test laboratories and manufacturers. His work includes designing products, developing procedures, performing tests and advising developers on routes and techniques for attaining product compliance. He has been directly involved with EMC design and compliance evaluation for many systems including several power plants (facilities and equipment qualification), hospitals, presidential aircraft, the Space Shuttle and Hubble Space Telescope. He presents various courses on EMI/EMC compliance including EMC for Nuclear Power Facilities, Architectural Shielding and a hands-on course MIL-STD-461 testing at the WLL facility in Maryland and on-site for multiple government and industrial clients. His work also includes EMC, Environmental and Safety evaluations for commercial, military and medical devices and training of hundreds of personnel on test and evaluation techniques. He has authored several papers on equipment qualification and evaluation techniques with presentations at many conferences. He is a member of the TR-102323 Working Group and supported preparation of Revision 4.

Included Modules

Commercial Wireless Compliance: Wireless and Risk Management [2017 Webinar Recording] (module)

This Course is from a multi-part series. Below is a description of the complete series. Each of the following parts/sessions can be purchased separately at http://wll.coggno.com/shop:

FCC Approval Requirements/Process

Presented by Tim Johnson

This webinar will review various rule part applicability for the more common applications for licensed and unlicensed wireless device approval for US and Canada.  Restrictions on modifications and use of accessories are presented.  Modular approval and integration requirements are discussed for the designer implementing wireless functionality into products. SAR and MPE requirements and details regarding permissive change options are identified.  A review of the grant and obtaining technical detail on the approval is reviewed.  Rule parts that require FCC involvement are identified.

FCC Application Review (Content Requirements)

Presented by Greg Czumak

This webinar will review the application for approval content and presentation of technical detail from test results to design parameters.  Providing all the required information as part of the original application can expedite the approval process without a delay to obtain additional information required for approval.  This presentation is based on the reviewer perspective with identification on common omissions.  An essential training for those preparing applications.

New European Radio Requirements Could Leave You in the “RED”

Presented by Michael Derby

As the required implementation date and the end of the R&TTED to RED transition period rapidly approaches, this training addresses compliance to Directive 2014/53/EU, known as the RED. We have seen a lot of activity in harmonizing standards but it is still expected that Notified Body (NB) involvement will be needed in many cases.  This webinar reviews the requirements and timelines of the RED, the status of the harmonised or draft standards, and the requirements for using a Notified Body including the technical documentation file. Preparation for the June 2017 deadline for maintaining compliance of products on the EU and EEA market must be completed, and this training provides essential information.

Anatomy of a Test

Presented by John Repella

Many wireless device approval regulations require an extensive set of test and measurements to confirm that a device is compatible with radio frequency spectrum matters.  Although not applicable to all countries, the RED cites use of specific harmonized standards to demonstrate compliance and these ETSI standards describe the test program.  Compliance in other countries have a similar test program with their specific requirements that have a lot of similarity to the ETSI testing.

This webinar provides a detailed review of a test program based on compliance with a selected ETSI standard (300 328) The test approach, measurements, and verification of compliance for:

  • RF power
  • Duty Cycle
  • Accumulated Transmit Time
  • Hopping Frequency Separation
  • Medium Utilization
  • Adaptivity
  • Occupied Channel Bandwidth
  • Unwanted emissions (TX & RX)
  • Receiver Blocking

+ Other specific elements will be discussed, and the requirement for immunity testing will be provided as a separate class on this topic.

Those involved in design and qualification testing of wireless devices will find this information critical for understanding what happens during the test program and why the operation control of the device under test is so critical for the testing.

Wireless Broadband Device and DFS Requirements

Presented by Michael Young

According to the 802.16-2004 WiMAX standard, broadband means “having instantaneous bandwidths greater than 1 MHz and supporting data rates greater than 1.5 Mbit/s. This seminar explores the technologies that have proliferated after the introduction of IEEE 802.xx series of specifications. There is a wide range of systems available spanning from 900 MHz through 72 GHz. Discussion will present an overview current Wi-Fi devices, as well as other the license-free bands and equipment that operates in these bands. Dynamic Frequency Selection requirements for operation in the 5 GHz region for radar protection is included in this wireless device class.  We will also explore the TV White Spaces and introduce the new Citizens Broadband Radio Service.

This class provide essential information for the designers incorporating broadband technology into their products and to the test and evaluation team on understanding the parameters associated with this product type.

International Approval

Presented by Mark Maynard

This webinar provides details on the approval process for many Asia Pacific, South America, Africa, Middle East and Europe (Non-EU) countries.  Information regarding the technical requirements, requirement for in country test and evaluation and specific variances for select countries are discussed.  A critical training for those associated with the international market approval.

Immunity Requirements – Wireless

Presented by Steven Koster

Many country approvals include Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) evaluations that require immunity as part of the approval process.  This class reviews the various immunity test requirements using a RED harmonized standard as the basis for test selection.  From radiated RF to power interruptions, the details are examined along with the fundamentals of accomplishing the tests.  This class supplements the class on testing of the radio performance testing previously presented.
