Providing Power to the AX411 Access Point Using Power over Ethernet

The preferred method of supplying power to the AX411 Access Point is with Power over Ethernet (PoE). This technology allows the transmission of electrical power to remote devices over the same cables that the Ethernet traffic uses.

To connect the access point to a PoE power source:

  1. Locate a PoE-capable port on the device to which you are connecting the access point. If you are connecting the access point directly to the SRX Series Services Gateway, ensure that the services gateway has PoE capability. See the hardware guide for your SRX Series Services Gateway for information about PoE.
  2. If necessary, enable PoE on the interface to which you are connecting the access point. For an SRX Series Services Gateway, the Junos OS command-line interface (CLI) command for enabling PoE on a port is:

    set poe interface interface-name maximum-power 12.4

    To enable PoE on all PoE-capable ports:

    set poe interface all maximum-power 12.4

  3. Connect the access point to the PoE port using a standard CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable.
  4. After connecting the access point to the PoE port, check the Power LED on the top of the access point to make sure the device is receiving power.
