Power Requirements for AP12

The AP12 requests 12.9 W to provide wireless only functionality. The AP12 requires 802.3at power when you use the PoE out functionality. The AP can provide 7 W of PoE out. If you don't need to use PoE out, the AP can operate with full functionality using 802.3af power. You can use any of the following options to power on an AP12:

  • Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) from an Ethernet switch

    We recommend that you use an Ethernet cable with a maximum length of 100 m to connect the access point (AP) to the switch port.

    If you use an Ethernet cable that is longer than 100 m by placing an Ethernet PoE+ extender in the path, the AP might power up, but the Ethernet link does not transmit data across such a long cable. You might see the status LED blink yellow twice. This LED behavior indicates that the AP is unable to receive data from the switch.

  • PoE injector
