The Belden Wireless Solution Support Program consists of two levels of service/support, including:

Standard Warranty

The Standard Warranty and Technical Support program guarantees the system hardware for a 12-month period and the system software for 90 days from the date of shipment to the system integrator or end user. In addition, the Standard Warranty provides Technical Support via telephone or email for the first six months of Belden Wireless Solution ownership.

ActiveTAC™ Extended Service Program

Designed to provide Belden Wireless Solution end users with additional peace of mind, this extended program provides a hardware warranty of up to three years, as well as a next business day (NBD) Advanced Hardware Replacement Policy for any system hardware that may be required. In addition, the program provides for timely download of all system software patches and updates, a preferred rate on all Belden Professional Services, and Technical Support via telephone or email for the duration of the end user’s ActiveTAC Extended Service Program.

A value-added feature of the Belden ActiveTAC Program is discounted rates on a comprehensive array of Belden Professional Services designed to support any pre- or post-sale system design, security and network integration issues that may arise. These services are also available to

Standard Warranty customers at standard rates. Among the Professional Services offered are:

• Troubleshooting services for particularly complex WLAN installations, such as in industrial manufacturing plants and warehouse/distribution centers
