Hi,

There are two 802.11 standards in use in the world, the one used by the USA, and the other by Europe. Can anyone point me to an "official" link that details which one (if either) have been adopted by New Zealand?  We would always choose to use the US Standard as it has greater power.. BUT, is that official?

Thanks,

Andrew

The standard is the same. Some countries limit the number of channels it can use due to band utilisation in each location, but overall a wi-fi device here will work the same in the USA or Europe...

I thought there was a gentlemens agreement not to ask such questions or the RSM will get some idea to limit our channel allowance.

NZ has its own spectrum management regulations, as does every other country.

With respect to 802.11b/g channels - NZ follows the ETSI standards which allows 13 channels.  Every US centric reference you see to channels 1,6,11 being non overlapping, should be substituted for channels 1,7,13 in NZ.

NZ allows maximum EIRP of 1W at 2.4GHZ for any modulation, 4W for digital modulation of FHSS.  This is for point - point and point - multipoint appliciations.

NZ allows maximum EIRP of 1W at 5.8GHz for any modulation for non point - point, max EIRP of 200W, with a max IR of 1W for point - point applications.  Maximum power allowances at 5GHz are slightly different depending on the exact frequency used.  Above figures are for 5.725 - 5.825GHz.

See http://www.rsm.govt.nz/cms/licensing/types-of-licence/general-user-licences/fixed-radio-link-devices/information-on-the-operation-of-wireless-lan-and-related-systems-in-the-2-ghz-and-5-ghz-bands?searchterm=802.11%20power for full details.
