Powering APs through solar panels


Powering APs (particularly mesh APs) through solar panel can be very handy sometimes.
The powering design should include not only the solar panel but also a battery for night or bad weather operation and some electronic to handle the charge / discharge of the battery.
You will find below some pictures.

The AP85 pictures a realisation where power is drawn from a light pole and therefore is available only during night.
The AP125 is fully powered through solar though.

Re: Powering APs through solar panels

Your post reminded me about a posting I read a few months back on another listserv, about sizing a solar-powered solution properly. The vendor under discussion was Alvarion, but the same priniciples apply, just different numbers.

Highly recommended read.
