Working Modes and Required Test Items
The manufacturer shall state whether the UUT is capable of operating as a Master and/or a Client. If the UUT
is capable of operating in more than one operating mode then each operating mode shall be tested separately.
See tables 6 and 7 for the applicability of DFS requirements for each of the operational modes.

If the client moves with the master, the device is considered compliant if nothing appears in the client
non-occupancy period test. For devices that shut down (rather than moving channels), no beacons
should appear. An analyzer plot that contains a single 30-minute sweep on the original channel.

Note: Frequencies selected for statistical performance check (Section 7.8.4) should include
several frequencies within the radar detection bandwidth and frequencies near the edge of
the radar detection bandwidth. For 802.11 devices it is suggested to select frequencies in
each of the bonded 20 MHz channels and the channel center frequency.

Note 1: This is the level at the input of the receiver assuming a 0 dBi receive antenna.
Note 2: Throughout these test procedures an additional 1 dB has been added to the amplitude of the
test transmission waveforms to account for variations in measurement equipment. This will ensure
that the test signal is at or above the detection threshold level to trigger a DFS response.
Note3: EIRP is based on the highest antenna gain. For MIMO devices refer to KDB Publication

Note 1: Channel Move Time and the Channel Closing Transmission Time should be performed with
Radar Type 0. The measurement timing begins at the end of the Radar Type 0 burst.
Note 2: The Channel Closing Transmission Time is comprised of 200 milliseconds starting at the
beginning of the Channel Move Time plus any additional intermittent control signals required to
facilitate a Channel move (an aggregate of 60 milliseconds) during the remainder of the 10 second
period. The aggregate duration of control signals will not count quiet periods in between
transmissions.
Note 3: During the U-NII Detection Bandwidth detection test, radar type 0 should be used. For each
frequency step the minimum percentage of detection is 90 percent. Measurements are performed
with no data traffic.

Three subsets of trials will be performed with a minimum of ten trials per subset. The subset of trials differ in
where the Long Pulse Type 5 Signal is tuned in frequency.
a) the Channel center frequency
b) tuned frequencies such that 90% of the Long Pulse Type 5 frequency modulation is within the low edge of
the UUT Occupied Bandwidth
c) tuned frequencies such that 90% of the Long Pulse Type 5 frequency modulation is within the high edge of
the UUT Occupied Bandwidth
It include 10 trails for every subset, the formula as below,
For subset case 1: the center frequency of the signal generator will remain fixed at the center of the UUT
Channel.
For subset case 2: to retain 90% frequency overlap between the radar signal and the UUT Occupied
Bandwidth, the center frequency of the signal generator will vary for each of the ten trials in subset case 2.
The center frequency of the signal generator for each trial is calculated by:
+(0.4∗ ℎ

For subset case 3: to retain 90% frequency overlap between the radar signal and the UUT Occupied

Channel Loading
System testing will be performed with channel-loading using means appropriate to the data types that are
used by the unlicensed device. The following requirements apply:
a)
b)
c)
d)
The data file must be of a type that is typical for the device (i.e., MPEG-2,
MPEG-4, WAV, MP3, MP4, AVI, etc.) and must generally be transmitting in a
streaming mode.
Software to ping the client is permitted to simulate data transfer but must have
random ping intervals.
Timing plots are required with calculations demonstrating a minimum channel
loading of approximately 17% or greater.

Unicast or Multicast protocols are preferable but other protocols may be used.
The appropriate protocol used must be described in the test procedures.

Calibration of DFS Detection Threshold Level
The measured channel is 5500 MHz in 20MHz Bandwidth, 5510MHz in 40MHz Bandwidth and 5530MHz in
80MHz. The radar signal was the same as transmitted channels, and injected into the antenna port of AP
(master) or Client Device with Radar Detection, measured the channel closing transmission time and channel
move time. The Master antenna gain is 3.428dBi and required detection threshold is -59.572dBm (= -64 +1
+3.428). The calibrated conducted detection threshold level is set to -59.572 dBm.

Test Results
6.2.1
Test Mode: Device Operating In Client without Radar Detection Mode.
The radar test signals are injected into the Master Device.
This test was investigated for different bandwidth (20MHz, 40MHz and 80MHz).
The following plots was done on 80MHz as a representative
DFS Detection Threshold
The Required detection threshold is -59.572dBm (= -64 +1 +3.428).
The conducted radar burst level is set lower than -59.572dBm.

ASSOCIATED TEST
1) Test results demonstrating an associated client link is established with the master on a test
frequency.
EUT (Client ) links with master on 5530MHz
2) The client and DFS-certified master device are associated, and system testing will be performed
with channel-loading for a non-occupancy period test.
Client performed with channel-loading via master.

3). The device transmits one type of radar as specified in the DFS Order.
Radar 0 is used to test during DFS testing.
4) The test frequency has been monitored to ensure no transmission of any type has occurred for 30
minutes;
Note: If the client moves with the master, the device is considered compliant if nothing appears in the
client non-occupancy period test. For devices that shut down (rather than moving channels), no
beacons should appear;

Non-Associated Test
Master was off.
During the 30 minutes observation time, The UUT did not make any transmissions in the DFS band after UUT
power up.

Non- Co-Channel Test
The UUT was investigated after radar was detected the channel and made sure no co-channel operation with
radars.
