Aironet 1530 connections

Does the "PoE-in" connector also provide the network connection or does the Lan connector need to be connected also? I'm a little confused even after going through the install documentation. Thank you in advance.

Ethernet (PoE) PortsThe

Ethernet (PoE) Ports

The access point supports an Ethernet uplink port (PoE-In). The access point Ethernet uplink port uses an RJ-45 connector (with weatherproofing) to link the access point to the 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T or 1000BASE-T network. The Ethernet cable is used to send and receive Ethernet data and to optionally supply inline 56-VDC power from the power injector.

Tip    The access point senses the Ethernet and power signals and automatically switches internal circuitry to match the cable connections.


POE , Power over Ethernet has

POE , Power over Ethernet has been designed to cater the two need, data transfer and Power transfer over one media.

Lightweight access points can

Lightweight access points can receive power through their Ethernet cables from 802.3af-compatible Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices, which can reduce the cost of discrete power supplies, additional wiring, conduits, outlets, and installation time. PoE frees you from having to mount lightweight access points or other powered equipment near AC outlets, which provides greater flexibility in positioning the access points for maximum coverage.

When you are using PoE, you run a single CAT-5 cable from each lightweight access point to PoE-equipped network elements, such as a PoE power hub or a Cisco WLAN solution single-line PoE injector. When the PoE equipment determines that the lightweight access point is PoE-enabled, it sends 48 VDC over the unused pairs in the Ethernet cable to power the access point.

The PoE cable length is limited by the 100BASE-T or 10BASE-T specification to 100 m or 200 m, respectively.
