Cisco IP Phone through AP-205H

Has anybody ever set-up a Cisco IP phone to work through one of the Ethernet ports on an AP-205H??

We have an education customer who would like to install AP-205H in all rooms in the halls but each room only has a single cable and running more cables is not an option. Currently this single cable is used to connect to a Cisco IP phone and the user plugs their device in to the phone.

If we install AP-205H's can the IP phone be connected to the PoE out port (presumably in bridge mode with the port set-up as a trunk) and it function as it does now?

This can be done, but the AP205H must have an 802.3at switch powering it to be able to power the phone up to 10 watts if you only have a single cable:
