Juniper Access Point Ports and Their Usage

SUMMARY Use the information in this topic to learn about the ports available on the Juniper Access points and determine how to use them in your network.

Table 1 lists the ports available on the Juniper access point (AP) models.

Wi-Fi 6E

AP24

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

AP34

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

AP45

Eth0: PoE 802.3bt in + data in

Eth1: Data out

If the Eth0 port is connected to 802.3bt power, the Eth1 port can operate as a PoE power sourcing equipment (PSE) providing up to 15.4 W power.

AP64

Eth0: PoE 802.3at/802.3bt in + data in

Wi-Fi 6

AP12

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

If the Eth0 port is connected to 802.3at power, the Eth1 port can operate as a PoE power sourcing equipment (PSE) providing up to 7 W power.

Eth2 and Eth3: Data out

AP32

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

AP33

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

AP43

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data Out

If the Eth0 port is connected to 802.3bt power, the Eth1 port can operate as a PoE power sourcing equipment (PSE) providing up to 15.4 W power.

Supports digital inputs (0 to +5V), digital outputs (0 to +5V), and analog inputs (0 to +5V)

AP63

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

If the Eth0 port is connected to 802.3bt power, the Eth1 port can operate as a PoE power sourcing equipment (PSE) providing up to 15.4 W power.

Wi-Fi 5

AP21

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data Out

If the PoE Passthrough feature is enabled, the Eth1 port can provide PoE out.

Note:

The Eth1 port is typically used to connect to the AP21 but it can also be used to obtain Ethernet access. You'll need to disable PoE Passthrough on the AP before connecting the device to the Eth1 port.

AP41

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

Supports digital inputs (0 to +5V), digital outputs (0 to +5V), and analog inputs (0 to +5V)

AP61

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

The Eth1 port does not support PoE out.

BT11

Eth0: PoE 802.3at in + data in

Eth1: Data out

If the PoE Passthrough feature is enabled, the Eth1 port can provide PoE out.

Note:

The Eth1 port is typically used to connect to the BT11 but it can also be used to obtain Ethernet access. You'll need to disable PoE Passthrough on the AP before connecting the device to the Eth1 port.

IoT Port Pins

The IoT port on the AP41 and AP43 contains 8 pins:

  • 2 digital IN pins that you can use only as input

  • 1 digital OUT pin

  • 4 analog pins that you can use for both input and output

  • 1 ground pin

The following figure shows the IoT port connector that you can connect to the IoT port on the AP.

How to Enable the IoT Port

Use the following API call to enable the IoT port.  The iot_config attribute provides information about the status of the pins on the IoT port.

PUT : https://api.mist.com/api/v1/sites/:site_id/devices/:device_id

Note:

Ensure that you configure the SSID for 2.4 GHz or dual band; otherwise, the IoT devices will not detect any SSID or WLAN,

You can view the current state of the IoT port pins by using the following API call:

GET /api/v1/sites/:site_id/devices/:device_id/iot

You can view the AP statistics for a site by using the following API call:

GET /api/v1/sites/:site_id/stats/devices 

The API output also includes the information from the integrated sensors as shown in the example below:
