2.0 Equipment Under Test
Unless otherwise noted in the individual test results sections, testing was performed on the EUT
as follows.
2.1
EUT Description
The ARRIS VMS4100 HD Video Media Server is an advanced whole home solution for viewing
entertainment in the home. It is a media server that includes multiple QAM tuners up to
860MHz, a high-end processor, expanded memory, and enhanced graphics to support delivery of
digital, on-demand, and interactive services, including 4K video, throughout the entire home.
The ARRIS VMS4100 provides a full complement of interconnection options including
Bluetooth for Remote control and audio streaming. This device not only allows for streaming
media content, but also uses smaller, more energy-efficient IP client set-top boxes (STBs). The
ARRIS VMS4100 communicates with the client set-top boxes (STBs) each connected to a TV.
2.2
Product Category
FCC Part 15, Subpart C (Section 15.247)
2.3
Product Classification
Intentional Radiator Testing Requirements DTS
Operation within the band of 2400 - 2483.5 MHz.
2.4
Test Configuration
The antenna within the ARRIS VMS4100 set top box was controlled by software which allowed
selection of frequency with BLE modulation. When selecting specific transmission frequencies
the software would allow the technician to select the Maximum Output Power. The EUT with
BLE provides GFSK modulation with a 1 Mbps Rate. Frequencies of 2402 MHz, 2440 MHz and
2480 MHz were tested at the Maximum Power Output.
2.5
Test Configuration Rationale
The tested configuration of the EUT was required so that the test technician could view the
characteristics of the antenna at specific frequencies and allow the technician to record the
required measurements.
2.6
Test Software Version
The test software “simple_app Version 0107” was used to control the BLE antenna transmit
frequency and output power. The software was supplied to BEC Incorporated by ARRIS
Corporation.

Conducted Emissions AC power leads (47 CFR 15.207(b))
AC Power Line
Conducted emissions at the power line input of the EUT were measured with an EMI receiver set
to the appropriate detector and CISPR bandwidth, which was connected to the RF output of a 50
Ω, 50 μH Line Impedance Stabilization Network (LISN) installed in each power line.
Measurements were made over the frequency range of 150 kHz to 30 MHz while the EUT was
operating as described in the EUT section of this report. The significant amplitudes of emissions
measured on the AC power lines of the EUT were recorded as follows:
Emission (dBµV) = Meter Reading (dBµv) + Cable Loss (dB) + LISN Factor (dB) + Limiter
Loss (dB)

Restricted Bands of Operation Per 47 CFR 15.209 30 MHz - 25 GHz
OATS
The Open Area Test Site (OATS) is an all-weather facility with a wooden enclosure that contains
a ground level 4-foot diameter turntable capable of rotating equipment 360 degrees. The
enclosure is free of reflective metallic objects and extraneous electromagnetic signals. This nonmetallic enclosure and the 3 and 10 meter test range existing outside the enclosure rest upon a
protective insulating material, which in turn covers a flat, metal, continuous ground plane.
Instrumentation for remote control of the antenna mast, turntable, and other equipment are
controlled by personnel indoors. The EUT and support peripherals required for EUT operation
were placed on a table 80 cm high for tabletop equipment or directly on the turntable surface for
floor standing equipment.
The test site complies with the attenuation measurements specified in ANSI C63.4:2014 and is a
registered site with the FCC (US1118).
SR#1
The Semi-Anechoic Shielded Room (SR#1) is an ferrite and absorber lined chamber which
houses a 5-foot diameter turntable capable of rotating equipment 360 degrees and antenna mast
for Horizontal and Vertical polarity measurements. The enclosure is free of reflective metallic
objects and extraneous electromagnetic signals. This 3 meter shielded enclosure has a raised
computer floor with metal tile bottoms providing a continuous ground plane.
Instrumentation for remote control of the antenna mast, turntable, and other equipment are
controlled by personnel outside the chamber. The EUT and support peripherals required for
EUT operation were placed on a table 80 cm high for tabletop equipment or directly on the
turntable surface for floor standing equipment.
The test site complies with the attenuation measurements specified in ANSI C63.4:2014
Radiated Emissions 30 MHz – 40 GHz
The EMI receiver was set to quasi-peak mode for frequencies from 30MHz to 1GHz and the
appropriate CISPR bandwidths were employed. The receiver was set to average mode for
frequencies above 1GHz with the appropriate CISPR bandwidths were employed. Significant
emissions found during the preliminary scans were maximized by rotating the turntable and
varying the antenna height. Both horizontal and vertical antenna polarities were also
investigated for suspect emissions. The signals are maximized and measured using the in house
generated RADE or off the shelf TILE software. The support equipment and test item(s) were
powered off in turn to determine the source of the emissions where appropriate.
Field strengths were calculated as follows:
Field Strength (dBµV/m) = Meter Reading (dBµV) + Antenna Factor (dB/m) + Cable Loss (dB)
– Amplifier Gain (dB)

4.5.1 Restricted Bands of Operation Per 47 CFR 15.247(d) and 15.209(a) 30
MHz – 1000 MHz Test Results (04/24/2017)
The emissions, from the ARRIS VMS4100, which fall in the restricted bands of operation,
detailed in this section, comply with the limits of 15.209. The EUT was tested at a combination
of frequencies with maximum RF output at Low Frequency (LF) 2.402 GHz, Middle Frequency
(MF) 2.441 GHz and High Frequency (HF) 2.480 GHz. The EUT was configured to set the
output of the BLE modulation to GFSK modulation with a 1 Mbps Rate.
Measurement of the signals was performed with the EUT on a turntable and a variable height
antenna mast at 3 meters distance. The signals residing in restricted bands of operation were the
second harmonic of the carrier. The table below shows the highest emission measured among
the nine combinations of frequency and modulation. No signals related to the intentional
radiator antenna frequencies were detected in the scanned frequency range of 30 MHz to 1000
MHz.

Test Results: The ARRIS VMS4100 EPR4 complies with the requirements of 47 CFR Part
15.209(a). Emissions in the restricted frequency bands, namely the second and third harmonics
of the transmitter frequency, were measured. Those average detected signals levels that
exceeded the limits of 15.209(a), were re-measured with reduced bandwidth of 10 Hz.

4.6 Spurious Radiated Emissions-Non Restricted Bands Per 47 CFR
15.247(d) and 15.209(a)
The EUT was scanned in the frequency ranges of 30 MHz to 1000 MHz and then 1 to 25 GHz.
Connection to the EUT was made by direct conducted connection to the BLE antenna. The
harmonics of the fundamental were checked to ensure that they were 20 dB below the peak of
the fundamental amplitude. The test receiver screen captures have D1 which shows the
fundamental peak amplitude of the intentional radiator at 2402 MHz, 2440 MHz and 2480 MHz
and D2 showing 20 dB below each of the fundamental frequencies.

4.10 Antenna Port, Power Spectral Density Per 47 CFR 15.247(e) Test
Results 06/12/2017
The VMS4100 employs a combination of both frequency hopping and digital modulation
techniques. Therefore, the power spectral density, conducted from the transmitter to the antenna
due to the digital modulation operation of the hybrid system, with the frequency hopping
operation turned off shall not be greater than 8 dBm in any 3 kHz band during continuous
transmission.
Measurement of the Power Spectral Density of the VMS4100 was made with the spectrum
analyzer connected directly to the transmitter output in place of the antenna. The table contains
the power levels of the BLE modulation GFSK modulation with a 1 Mbps Rate at low, middle
and high frequency channels in constant transmit mode, non-hopping.
