Re: Dual Homing:

In terms of dual-homing, you can plug in an AP135 with no configuration into two switches that provide POE.  You cannot aggregate the ports, so only one port will be active at one time (normaly ethernet0).  If power is cut to ethernet 0, the access point will cold boot (power cycle) and come up on ethernet1.  That is the extent of it.

 

Long story short, you will have some sort of outage while the access point reboots.  Mostly customers who need the high availability and can justify the cost of another ethernet port would even attempt this.  The truth is very few customers do it, because it would require double the number of switches.
