Important Information

Equipment Approval Information

Your telephone equipment is approved for connection to the Public Switched Telephone Network and is in compliance with parts 15

and 68, FCC Rules and Regulations and the Technical Requirements for Telephone Terminal Equipment published by ACTA.

1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company

On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the US number and Ringer Equivalence Number

(REN) for the equipment. You must, upon request, provide this information to your telephone company.

The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still have all of these devices

ring when your telephone number is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line

should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line as determined by the REN, you should

contact your local telephone company.

A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply with the applicable

FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this

product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.

• This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
• Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may not be able to use your own telephone equipment if you are on a

party line. Check with your local telephone company.

• Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent disconnection of your telephone from your line.
• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation of this product does not

disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone company or

a qualified installer.

2 Rights of the Telephone Company

Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone network, the telephone company shall, where

practicable, notify you that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. Where prior notice is not practicable and the

circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company may temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such

temporary discontinuance, the telephone company must: (1) promptly notify you of such temporary discontinuance; (2) afford

you the opportunity to correct the situation; and (3) inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant to

procedures set forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.

The telephone company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment, operations or procedures where such action

is required in the operation of its business and not inconsistent with FCC Rules and Regulations. If these changes are expected to

affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment, the telephone company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to

allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.

Interference Information

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference

that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.

These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the

instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur

in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment

off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television that is “receiving” the interference).
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications equipment and receiving antenna.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiving antenna is


If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for

additional suggestions. Also, the Federal Communications Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “How To Identify and Resolve

Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please
