What is the maximum allowed EIRP, based on the FCC standard?

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS versions.

 

 

Rule) Frequency (GHz) Outdoor? Type Conducted Power Maximum EIRP Power Maximum Maximum Antenna Gain
(15.247) 2.4 Yes Pt - Pt (AP and client must be FIXED.) 30 dBm No limit 6 dBi without conducted power reduction. Reduce conducted power 1 dB for each 3 dB of antenna gain over 6 dBi.
(15.247) 2.4 Yes Pt - MPt or Omni 30 dBm 36 dBm 6 dBi without conducted power reduction. Reduce conducted power 1 dB for each dB of antenna gain over 6 dBi.
(15.407) 5.15-5.25 No Pt - MPt or Omni Lesser of 50 mW or 4 dBm + 10 log B, (B = 26-dB b/w) in MHz. PSD <= 4 dBm/MHz 6 dB above conducted limit 6 dBi without conducted power reduction. Reduce conducted power and PSD 1 dB for each dB of antenna gain over 6 dBi.
(15.407) 5.25-5.35 Yes Pt - MPt or Omni Lesser of 250 mW or 11 dBm + 10 log B, (B = 26-dB b/w) in MHz. PSD <= 11 dBm/MHz 6 dB above conducted limit 6 dBi without conducted power reduction. Reduce conducted power and PSD 1 dB for each dB of antenna gain over 6 dBi.
(15.247) 5.725-5.850 Yes Pt - Pt (AP and client must be FIXED.) 1 Watt (30 dBm) No limit No limit
(15.407) 5.725-5.825 Yes Pt - MPt or Omni Lesser of 1 W or 17 dBm + 10 log B, (B = 26-dB b/w) in MHz. PSD <= 17 dBm/MHz 6 dB above conducted limit 6 dBi without conducted power reduction. Reduce conducted power and PSD 1 dB for each dB of antenna gain over 6 dBi.
(15.407) 5.725-5.825 Yes Pt - Pt (AP and client must be FIXED.) Lesser of 1 W or 17 dBm + 10 log B, (B = 26-dB b/w) in MHz. PSD <= 17 dBm/MHz No limit 23 dBi. Reduce conducted power and PSD 1 dB for each dB of antenna gain over 23 dBi.
