AP32 Power Requirements

The AP32 requires 802.3at (PoE+) power. The AP32 requests 19.5-W power to provide wireless functionality. However, the AP32 is capable of running on 802.3af (PoE) power with reduced functionality as described below:

  • The 5-GHz radio operates in 2x2 mode instead of 4x4 mode.

  • The Eth0+PoE port operates at a maximum speed of 1 Gbps.

  • The Eth1 port is disabled.

You can use any of the following options to power on the AP:

  • 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.
