Only if you are using a 3G/4G module (not possible on that model as far as I know) or the AP as a mesh point. But without those, you'll really need a cable. If you're not using the cable, you still need to provision the AP with sufficient power which will still require a cable so might as well use a network cable.

Unfortunately, it can only be configured with a controller, so it needs an ip address to communicate with the controller...

Re: Aruba 274 outdoor Access point

For any AP to come up without being on the network, it would need to be first configured as a mesh point (or if you have an IAP-274, it would need to be configured to come up as a stand-alone AP). If you have a non-Instant AP-274, you will need a controller first, as well as another AP that is on the wired network, to build a wireless bridge from the wired AP to your AP not on the network.
