802.11ac - Non POE+ Port

If you do not have POE+ 802.11at for AP225 on a customer site how will this effect the RF quality and Signal strength.

Re: 802.11ac - Non POE+ Port

From Installation Guide::

 

The AP is receiving power from an 802.3af PoE source. In this mode, the AP has limited functionality: the Ethernet port not connected
to the PoE source is disabled, the USB port is disabled, the AP operates in 1x3 RF chain for 2.4 GHz, and the AP operates in 2x3 RF chain for 5 GHz.


Additionally;

 

When operating on 802.3af, only the port connected to power is usable. For example, if the source of power is connected to ENET 0, ENET 1 will not work.

 

The USB interface is disabled when the AP-220 Series is powered from 802.3af PoE.

Hi Thanks for the information.

 

It is best practice to offer the customer POE+ in that case.
