Aruba 205/305 - Power Save Mode explained



Is anyone able to explain exactly what functionality if any, is lost when APs run in Power Save Mode?


Many thanks

205/305 APs with Orange Status Light (flashing and solid)

AS i udnerstand this means they are operating in POWER SAVE MODE.

Can anyone explain what this means and what if any functionality is lost?

Many thanks


Re: Aruba 205/305 - Power Save Mode explained

These APs will enter power-save mode when they're powered by an 802.3af POE source. The power budget from those sources is too limited to operate the APs without restrictions. AFAIK the only restriction is the fact that the USB port is disabled. It's possible to overrule that restriction, but that could be risky depending on how much power you're drawing from that port and how much power is consumed by the AP itself.
