I came across the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) standard for non specific Short Range Devices which is documented in EN 300.200 .
On page 28 under Section 7.2.3 with Heading Limits, a table is mentioned which has regulations on max power of different frequency bands.
Owing to be under 1 GHz freqency range, all bands are long range bands. And some bands are allowed up to 500mW (+27dB) or 25mW (+14dB).
What I am confused that with this much transmission power how are these devices classified as Short Range Devices? Also with this high transmission power, what range can we expect from such SRDs?
