I have a client that what to put surveillance cameras in railroad carriages (I think that's what is cold, in English).

He what's to put two cameras per carriage.

And, above wall, he what's to connect each camera directly, by wired, to one Access Point (AP).

The thing is like this,

We could have a train with 6 carriages, 12 cameras and 12 APs.

The client will have a server, somewhere in the train, with the software that will control all the cameras.

I was thinking in a solution with the APs configured as bridges, to have connectivity between carriages.

Can this work …or not??

If not, can some one help me, please!!

Thanks in advance,

You can't wire 2 cameras to the AP. You need to wire the cameras and AP to a switch (PoE) and you can configure the AP to be a bridge.
