WiFi: The ETSI EN 301 893 standard evolves in Europe

The European Directive 2014/53/EU outlines the requirements for making available radio equipment within European markets. The European Technological Standards Institute (ETSI) standard ETSI EN 301 893 addresses section 3.2 of the European Directive 2014/53/EU. The latest version of this standard (ETSI EN 301 893 v2.1.1), effective 12th of June 2018, impacts radio local area networking (RLAN) equipment operating in the 5,150MHz to 5,725MHz range. Products that do not comply with the standard can no longer be marketed in Europe after the 12th of June, 2018.

The Stormshield wireless products, the SN160W and SN210W, remain compliant with the standard. Stormshield wireless products comply with the new version of the standard and are not impacted by this change in the standard. Stormshield customers and partners can continue to use and distribute our products with confidence.

And for your other products, have you asked your suppliers if they are compliant?
