FCC ID: SBVRM016
DATE: SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
IC: 5373A-RM016
SYSTEM OVERVIEW
The short pulse and long pulse signal generating system utilizes the NTIA software. The Vector
Signal Generator has been validated by the NTIA. The hopping signal generating system
utilizes the CCS simulated hopping method and system, which has been validated by the DoD,
FCC and NTIA. The software selects waveform parameters from within the bounds of the signal
type on a random basis using uniform distribution.
The short pulse types 1, 2, 3 and 4, and the long pulse type 5 parameters are randomized at
run-time.
The hopping type 6 pulse parameters are fixed while the hopping sequence is based on the
August 2005 NTIA Hopping Frequency List. The initial starting point randomized at run-time and
each subsequent starting point is incremented by 475. Each frequency in the 100-length
segment is compared to the boundaries of the EUT Detection Bandwidth and the software
creates a hopping burst pattern in accordance with Section 7.4.1.3 Method #2 Simulated
Frequency Hopping Radar Waveform Generating Subsystem of KDB 905462 D02. The
frequency of the signal generator is incremented in 1 MHz steps from FL to FH for each
successive trial. This incremental sequence is repeated as required to generate a minimum of
30 total trials and to maintain a uniform frequency distribution over the entire Detection
Bandwidth.
The signal monitoring equipment consists of a spectrum analyzer. The aggregate ON time is
calculated by multiplying the number of bins above a threshold during a particular observation
period by the dwell time per bin, with the analyzer set to peak detection and max hold.
SYSTEM CALIBRATION
A 50-ohm load is connected in place of the spectrum analyzer, and the spectrum analyzer is
connected to a horn antenna via a coaxial cable, with the reference level offset set to (horn
antenna gain – coaxial cable loss). The signal generator is set to CW mode. The amplitude of
the signal generator is adjusted to yield a level of –64 dBm as measured on the spectrum
analyzer.
Without changing any of the instrument settings, the spectrum analyzer is reconnected to the
Common port of the Spectrum Analyzer Combiner/Divider. The Reference Level Offset of the
spectrum analyzer is adjusted so that the displayed amplitude of the signal is –64 dBm.
The spectrum analyzer displays the level of the signal generator as received at the antenna
ports of the Master Device. The interference detection threshold may be varied from the
calibrated value of –64 dBm and the spectrum analyzer will still indicate the level as received by
the Master Device.

ADJUSTMENT OF DISPLAYED TRAFFIC LEVEL
A link is established between the Master and Slave and the distance between the units is
adjusted as needed to provide a suitable received level at the Master and Slave devices. The
FCC audio test file is streamed from the Master device to the Slave device to generate WLAN
traffic. Traffic that approaches the minimum channel loading requirement, but is at the highest
channel loading the EUT is capable of producing, is streamed from the Master device to the
Slave Device. The monitoring antenna is adjusted so that the WLAN traffic level, as displayed
on the spectrum analyzer, is at lower amplitude than the radar detection threshold.

6.1.6. DESCRIPTION OF EUT
For FCC the EUT operates over the 5250-5350 MHz and 5470-5725 MHz ranges.
For IC the EUT operates over the 5250-5350 MHz and 5470-5725 MHz ranges, excluding the
5600-5650 MHz range.
The EUT is a Slave Device without Radar Detection.
The highest power level within these bands is 22.15 dBm EIRP in the 5250-5350 MHz band and
22.43 dBm EIRP in the 5470-5725 MHz band.
The highest gain antenna assembly utilized with the EUT has a gain of 2.6 dBi in the 5 GHz
band. The lowest gain antenna assembly utilized with the EUT has a gain of 0.6 dBi in the
5 GHz band.
Two antennas are utilized to meet the diversity and MIMO operational requirements in the 5GHz
band.
The rated output power of the Master unit is > 23dBm (EIRP). Therefore the required
interference threshold level is –64 dBm. After correction for procedural adjustments, the
required radiated threshold at the antenna port is –64 + 1 = -63 dBm.
The calibrated radiated DFS Detection Threshold level is set to –64 dBm. The tested level is
lower than the required level hence it provides a margin to the limit.
The EUT uses three transmitter/receiver chains, each connected to an antenna to perform
radiated tests.
WLAN traffic is generated by streaming the FCC audio video file from the Master to the Slave
using Sonos Controller version 9.1 software package resident on the controller/console
notebook computer.
TPC is not required since the maximum EIRP is less than 500 mW (27 dBm).
The EUT utilizes the 802.11a/n architecture. One nominal channel bandwidth, 20 MHz, is
implemented.
The software installed in the EUT and the Master device point is Sonos Controller version 9.1.

UNIFORM CHANNEL SPREADING
This is requirement not applicable to Slave Devices.
OVERVIEW OF MASTER DEVICE WITH RESPECT TO §15.407 (h) REQUIREMENTS
The Master Device is a Sonos Playbar wireless smart speaker, FCC ID: SBVR006. The
minimum antenna gain for the Master Device is 4 dBi.
The rated output power of the Master unit is > 23dBm (EIRP). Therefore the required
interference threshold level is –64 dBm. After correction for procedural adjustments, the
required radiated threshold at the antenna port is –64 + 1 = -63 dBm.
The calibrated radiated DFS Detection Threshold level is set to –64 dBm. The tested level is
lower than the required level hence it provides a margin to the limit.

6.2.3. OVERLAPPING CHANNEL TESTS
RESULTS
These tests are not applicable.
6.2.4. MOVE AND CLOSING TIME
REPORTING NOTES
The reference marker is set at the end of last radar pulse.
The delta marker is set at the end of the last WLAN transmission following the radar pulse. This
delta is the channel move time.
The aggregate channel closing transmission time is calculated as follows:
Aggregate Transmission Time =
(Number of analyzer bins showing transmission) * (dwell time per bin)
The observation period over which the aggregate time is calculated begins at (Reference
Marker + 200 msec) and ends no earlier than (Reference Marker + 10 sec).
