3750-E with Cisco Enhanced PoE (20mW) for 1250 APs

Unanswered Question
Nov 5th, 2008

How many Cisco Aironet 1250 APs running 3x2 at 20mW under Cisco Enhanced PoE are supported on 3750E-48PD? Does it change with 3750E-48PD-F? How about X4648+E blade from 6500?

Where can I find a power calculator for 3750E?

I once had a customer buy 48 Cisco 7970 phones to find the 3560 switch couldn't power them all. Trying to avoid a repeat of that scenario.

I have this problem too.

The Power Calculator doesn't have a 20mW option for 1250 2x3 operation under Cisco Enhanced Power. I'm wondering if Cisco Enhanced Power might have other caveats.

Sorry, I didn't realize that the 20W option was not available on the power calculator. I found two helpful documents showing that enhanced PoE is available.

You will need the following IOS versions:

3560-E/3750-E: 12.2(44)SE or later.

4500: 12.2(44)SG or later, and an E series linecard.

6500: 12.2(33)SXH2 or later, all PoE line cards.

HTH,

Mark
