CTR 21 pan-EuropeanCertification

This equipment has been approved in accordance with Council Decision 98/482/EC for pan-Europeansingle terminal connection to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). However, due to differences between the individual PSTNs provided in different countries, the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional assurance of successful operation on every PSTN network termination point. In the event of problems, you should contact your equipment supplier in the first instance.

This device is designed to work with the notified networks in all EC member states. Nevertheless, some of the network services in invidual countries might not be supported, but they will not affect the normal data and fax applications. For example, the metering charge service in Germany. Besides you may encounter difficulty of using PULSE dialing function in some of the countries, such as Nordic countries. This kind of network compatibility is dependent on the physical and software settings of this device. If the users are desired to use this device on those networks, they should contact the vendor or supplier first.
