Aironet 1100 / 802.3af Power Over Ethernet (POE) Support

I was under the impression that the Aironet 1100 supports 802.3af POE. I purchased a NetGear FS108P POE switch, however, when I plug in the 1100, it does not receive any power.
I have seen references in the documentation to a Cisco inline power injector and a Cisco Catalyst switch that can provide POE to the 1100 and maybe they will work, however, will the 1100 only work with those devices?? If so, it would seem that the 1100 really doesn't support the 802.3af standard and that Cisco's implementation of POE is proprietary.
Any input would be appreciated.

Hi Michael,
As you have discovered (unfortunately) is that the 1100 only supports Cisco Pre-standard PoE :( Have a look;
Single 802.11g radio offering 54 Mbps of capacity
2.4 GHz integrated diversity dipole antennas
Available in an autonomous version only
16 MB of memory with 8 MB of storage
Operating temperature range of 32 to 104?F (0 to 40?C)
**Inline power support (Cisco pre-standard)**
From this doc;
The good news is that either of the options you listed will work just fine. I would go for the power injector probably just for neatness sake.
The Cisco Aironet 1100 Series can be powered either locally using the AC-DC power adapter, or over the Ethernet cable when coupled with a device capable of delivering in-line power, such as an in-line power-capable Cisco Catalyst? switch, Catalyst in-line power patch panel, or Cisco Aironet Power Injector.
The AC-DC power adapter is included with the access point and can also be ordered as a spare part. The Cisco Aironet Power Injector can either be configured to the order or can be ordered separately.
You can use either;
AIR-PWR-A= Cisco Aironet Power Supply-Input 110-240VAC, Output 48VDC, 380 mA-for 1100 and 1200 Series
AIR-PWRINJ3= Cisco Aironet Power Injector for the 1100 and 1200 Series Access Points

Hope this helps! And good luck!

  • 1300 Series Access Point/Bridge Power Injector - Using power over ethernet

    Can I use power over ethernet to supply the Injector with power?

    Hi Mikael,
    Sorry, this will not work. Have a look at these specs;
    1300 Series Power
    The access point/bridge receives inline power from the Cisco Aironet Power Injector (hereafter called the power injector). Dual-coax cables are used to provide Ethernet data and power from the power injector to the access point/bridge. The power injector is an external unit designed for operation in a sheltered environment, such as inside a building or vehicle. The power injector also functions as an Ethernet repeater by connecting to a Category 5 LAN backbone and using the dual-coax cable interface to the access point/bridge.
    The power injector is available in two models:
    Cisco Aironet Power Injector LR2 standard version (included with the access point/bridge)
    48-VDC input power
    Uses the 48-VDC power module (included with the access point/bridge)
    Cisco Aironet Power Injector LR2T optional transportation version
    12- to 40-VDC input power
    Note The power injector and the power module must not be placed in an outdoor unprotected environment. The power module must not be placed in a building's environmental air space, such as above a suspended ceiling.
    Dual coaxial cable to run from the power injector to the 1300. See attached notes:
    Cisco Aironet 1300 Series
    Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Access Point/Bridge Power Injector
    The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge Power Injector,converts the standard 10/100 BaseT Ethernet interface that is suitable for weather protected areas to a dual F-Type connector interface for coax cables that are more suitable for harsh outdoor environments. The Power Injector also provides power to the outdoor unit over the same cables with a power discover feature and surge protection. To support longer cable runs from your wireless network switch or router, the Power Injector LR is designed to accommodate up to a 100 meter coaxial cable run plus 100 meters of indoor cat5 cable?enabling total cable runs up to 200 meters. The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge ships with the Power Injector LR2 and an AC power supply.
    From this link:
    Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge Hardware Installation Guide
    Ethernet Ports
    The access point/bridge dual-coax Ethernet ports consists of a pair of 75-ohm F-type connectors, linking the unit to your 100BASE-T Ethernet LAN through the power injector. The dual-coax cables are used to send and receive Ethernet data and to supply inline 48-VDC power from the power injector to the access point/bridge.
    From this link:
    F-Type Connectors
    Dual coaxial cable carries full-duplex Ethernet, DC power, and full-duplex console port (RS-232 connection)

  • Power Over ethernet on Cisco switches - why??

    I administer 3 servers (two g4 towers and one xserve attached to an XCraid) and 50 Macintosh workstations in an agency/production group within a fairly large company (2000+). Like most major companies the majority of the computer and servers are Windows based (specifically DELL) with CISCO switches.
    I ran into a problem today where a switch was updated the "OS of the swithc" without my knowledge by our Infrastructure group. This resulted in a very high latency problem when pulling files from our Apple servers. After some digging we determined that the feature "Power Over Ethernet" had been disabled when they updated the switch's OS. Once we enabled PoE back on those ports, it was back to business.
    My question here is, why does this feature have to be enabled? All DELL servers reconnected without a hitch. I hear PoE is only really resevered for VoiP devices and such. What is it with Apple servers that need this feature turned on?
    Look forward to hear from you all.
    Xserver, Xraid, G5, etc   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    I can confirm that portfast makes a huge difference, as the autonegotiation between the switch and the client is performed inside of about 2 seconds, rather than the standard thrash-around period of about 40 seconds that some ethernet devices can use to determine line speed and simplex / duplex operation.
    Turn on portfast on any switch ports that you don't plan on using for trunking / uplinking. When you do this, it tells the switch that there isn't a managed switch / router downstream, so it doesn't need to try to negotiate routing protocols and whatnot - it greatly speeds up the autonegotiation process.
    Also, on some Cisco switches (We found it on a Cisco Catalyst 4006) if you lock the port to a specific operating speed / mode (e.g. 100Mbps / full duplex), the Mac doesn't like it nearly as much as if you leave it to autonegotiation. We were having the exact same issue the OP is seeing (limited bandwidth, massive CRC error count) until we put it back to auto and enabled portfast, and then we got the performance we expected, without recurrence of the issue.

  • Power over ethernet for AIR-BR1310G

    i have AIR-BR1310G that came with its proper power injector AIR-PWRINJ-BLR2 can this power injector be feed using a POE switch or do i have to use the 48v power adapter

    ELie: no PoE. You can only use power supply to operate the bridge.

  • 802.1x/PEAP over Ethernet

    I am trying to setup 802.1x PEAP in my home lab. I have:
    a windows 2003 enterprise server with SP2 and latest patches running as
    Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, WINS. The AD domain name is LAB.
    The windows 2003 is also running Cisco ACS 4.0.1 with a self-signed
    certififcate. I can log into the box https://PEAP8021x:2002 so the cert
    works. I also configure the ACS so that it can also use AD accounts for
    Cisco Catalyst 2960 running IOS version flash:c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin.
    This version supports 802.1x
    A couple of WindowsXP with Service Pack 2 and latest patches that will act as
    clients for the domain LAB.
    Everything is connected to the Catalyst switch 2960 via CAT-5 cables.
    I would like to accomplish something very simple. Before user(s) on
    WinXP can even access the domain LAB, the winXP machine must be
    authenticated with Cisco ACS with username/password on the AD Server
    so that the machine can be placed in the correct VLAN(s). If this is just
    a visitor and their machine is plugged into my network, authentication will
    fail and they will be put in a guest VLAN where the only connection they have
    will be acess to the Internet and that will be it. All the information will be pushed
    out to the catalyst from the Cisco ACS
    Can someone help me out on how to get this done? Thanks.

    You would need to do following :
    - Machine authentication with user authentication( This part is tricky on WinXP, you may get intermittent results)
    Something to help you:

  • 897VAM - power supply for PoE support

    I wanted to add PoE option to one of my ISR 897 VAM routers. So after googling and looking though all the documentation the datasheet for the 890 series router i ordered the 800-IL-PM-4.
    After installation of the daughter card I realised that to get this to work, the unit will need a powersupply with both 12VDC and 54VDC voltage, or a 125W powersupply as it's seems to be caled.
    Do any one know where to find part number for this powersupply?

  • PoE standard (cisco ILP vs 802.3af)

    I have CCNP switch official guide book, page 306 says below.
    For cisco ILP, inline power is provided over data pairs 2 and 3 (RJ45 1,2 and 3,6)
    For 802.3af power can be supplied in the same fashion (1 2 3 6) or over paris 1 and 4 (RJ45 4,5 and 7,8)
    Can you give me when those bold option is used in terms of PoE?

    I believe the 802.3af standard actually allows both pinout configurations.They are known as Mode A and Mode B.  Mode A uses the data pairs while Mode B uses the "spare" pairs. I have always been under the impression that Mode A would be what one would find on devices that terminate a connection. For example, a Cisco Catalyst switch that provides 802.3af power will use the Data Tx/Rx pairs (pins 1,2,3,6).  Further, my belief is that Mode B would be used by "mid-span" devices that insert power. For example, in-line power patch panels or in-line power injectors.  These panels use the "spare" pairs to carry DC power (pins 4,5,7,8).
    The equipment that provides the power (i.e. the power sourcing equipment) determines which Mode (i.e. pins) is used. The powered device that is 802.3af compliant must be capable of supporting both modes.
    Here is a quick reference chart:
    The chart doesn't directly answer your question, but you may find it handy as you are getting a feel for the material.

  • Extreme 802.11n support for POE 802.3af?

    Can anyone confirm if the new (current) generation Airport Extreme 802.11n supports PoE installation? There was a special -- also called education -- version of the previous generation Extreme based station for POE installation.
    * Nevermind, found previous posts!

    jheiliger, Welcome to the discussion area!
    The new square 802.11b/g/n AirPort Extreme base station (AEBS) apparently does NOT support POE (Power over Ethernet).

  • Cisco 1252s with regular 802.3af PoE switches - what are the impacts?

    Does anyone have any real-life experience with deploying the 1252s on regular 802.3af PoE switches?  I have a few 1252s one some 3560 PoE ports and the show up with "low power" alarms.
    I am wondering what the real world impact is with this scenario.  The 1252s have both 2.4 Ghz and 5.0 Ghz radios in them and I have HT enabled on the controller.
    I'm wondering what capabilities I am losing by running on 802.3af power besides the annoyance of the alarms.
    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry in advance for the book I have just written.
    I have three 1252s on 75 feet of Cat5e cable running to a 3560 PoE switch. Sometimes, but not always, I see a low power alarm on the access point(s). This is in a small building that is built like a fortress so the RF environment is somewhat challenging. I am watching WCS closely and see all three 2.4 GHz radios powered all the way up to power level 1. I notice that two of the 5GHz radios are on power level 1, and one is on level 3. I thought that RRM would not power anything down until you had at least four access points as RF neighbors. I believe I read that in a Ciscopress book and it seems to be true everywhere in our network when I look at buildings with 3 or less WAPs.
    The building in question does not have any other buildings close by with any 5GHz radios in operation - or at least I didn't see any when I did the survey.
    I'm wondering if the power setting of the radios is also related to the length of the Cat5e cabling. Seems to me a shorter run would have less resistance than longer runs, allowing the radio to have more power.
    My main concern is not this building in question, since we went for coverage and not client density in the design. We several other buildings on the radar, all libraries, which are going to be both RF challenging (bookshelves, furniture, cubicles, cubbies) and client-density challenged. These buildings have hundreds of WLAN clients in them at times - and I mean devices, not just people.
    Someone else told me (reputable source) that channel bonding is not an option when on 802.3af power. Makes sense, actually. I would never even think of bonding in the 2.4 GHz range for obvious reasons, but up in the 5GHz range it is a definate possibility in these buildings. Seems to be that we might be shooting ourselves in the foot by not using 802.3at power in these buildings.
    If channel bonding is disabled and the upper two MCS rates (using 800ns guard interval) of 117 and 130 are disabled, then I'm looking at maximum MCS rate of 104 Mbit/s compared to 270 Mbit/s with 802.3at with channels bonded in the 5GHz range.

  • 802.3af POE confusion

    Does anyone know the 15.4W output power per user port in the current 802.3af is the min. or max.? I've seen conflicting info on different vendor's spec sheet. If it's the max., then why are some "802.3af" injectors outputting as much as 1A.

    it is the max. 1 A POE can power multiple equipments.

  • SF-302-08P will not power 802.3af/at device

    I'm trying to power a Ruckus 7982 Access point using a Small Business SF-302-08P switch.  Ruckus claims the AP is 802.3af and 802.3at compatible.  The switch reports an overload.
    #sh power inline fast 5
      Port      Powered Device         State          Status    Priority   Class  
      fa5             2                 Auto          Fault       low     class0  
    Time range:
    Power limit: 15.400W
    Port Status:               Port is off - Overload state
    Overload Counter:          23
    Short Counter:             0
    Denied Counter:            0
    Absent Counter:            0
    Invalid Signature Counter: 0
    Here's what Ruckus' description of the PoE behavior of the 7982:
    The 7982 advertises itself as a Class 4 PoE device (as do other  enterprise class 3-stream APs), which is compatible with 802.3af and  802.3at switches.
    802.3af switches re-classify a device with this  behavior as 802.3af Class 0 (15.4W), and the vast majority of 802.3at  switches classify it as 802.3at Type 1 (15.4W).
    This  implementation is intentional as it maintains compatibility with both  802.3af and 802.3at switches, and allows the 7982 to support full  802.3at power (>15.4W with a future firmware upgrade to support LLDP,  if required).
    Seems to me it should work.  I updated to - no change.

         I didn't fully finish reading this post but read enough were I feel like this should be able to help you out.
    So pretty much this should work just fine though since the switch can for sure handle 15.4Ws. May be some configurations you need to check our or some changes you may need to make.
    Hope that helps you out.

  • Aironet 1100 Radio disabled at power up

    Just setting up an Aironet 1100. Anytime I reboot (or if power is lost) it comes up with the "radio" disabled. I understand that this may be the default behavior before configuring but shouldn't it remember the settings so it reboots to the last state? I am sure it is not desired to have to reenable the radio on every AP after a power failure. What am I missing?
    Thanks. Bruce
    Model info and software versions below:
    Product/Model Number: AIR-AP1121G-A-K9
    Top Assembly Serial Number: FTX1033V144
    System Software Filename: c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JEB1
    System Software Version: 12.3(8)JEB1
    Bootloader Version: 12.3(2)JA4

    Thanks Mike:
    I had seen that info about 12.3(4)---but thought that applied to default behavior and not whether it would explain losing the enabled status at every reboot.
    Should I try to upgrade the bootloader to a newer version (can that be done, where are the files?). Some of the terminology is confusing. I wasn't sure if that applied to my system (12.3(2)JA4) since that talks about 12.3(4)JA2 having the radio disabled by default and no SSID.
    I actually had tried to upload the newest system software (from JEB1) but that failed.
    Does the system software upgrade also update the bootloader version or are they independant?
    thanks for you help

  • 802.1x over ethernet and airport impossible together ??

    I am connected to my University network (and to the internet) through a 802.1x network (Through Ethernet, not Airport).
    I have an iPod Touch with which I want to connect to the Internet.
    I went under Sharing, and created a Wireless network sharing the Ethernet internet. I was able to connect my Mac WITHOUT 802.1x to the internet for some time (authorised for a short time by the university) and was able to access the Wifi network and the internet with the iPod Touch.
    However, as soon as I connect to the 802.1x network, Airport dismisses it's network, it just disappears ...
    Why does it do that, can I prevent it and if not, is there any alternative for my problem ?

    Yeah, I was just going on/hoping for... the 802.1x likeness.
    Have you repaired Permissions lately?
    Might try trashing these files & reboot...
    ... of course you dont have to trash them, you can just move them to the desktop to drag back if it doesn't work.

  • What happens if 3700 with WSSI module is connected to 802.3af PoE port?

    I know that the 3700 itself will drop to 3x4 MIMO if it only gets 15.4W of power (takes 16.8 with 4x4).  If I add in a WSSI module, I know that is not enough power to run the WSSI module.  We'd like to deploy our APs with the module installed and light up WSSI only as we get 802.3at power available.  What I don't know is if the AP will light up as 3x4 with WSSI disabled, or if the AP will just completely fail.   I should get a chance to test this soon, but if you happen to know, please tell!  
    Gary Hahn

    If you have enough power to the AP, you can look at the GUI and under the main screen under Access Point Summary, you will see Dual-Band Radios... the WSSI or WSM will show up there.

  • Poe881 Router and Cisco Inline Power (pre-standard PoE)

    I have a number of 881 Routers and 79x0 IP Phones. These phones use "Cisco Inline Power", aka "pre-standard PoE". In other words, they are not compatible with standard 802.3af PoE.
    It would be possible for me to install a daughtercard and DC adapter in the 881 routers and provide PoE to two of the ethernet ports. My question is whether the 881 (when equipped for PoE) will support Cisco Inline Power, or if it will only support 802.3af.
    For reference, the 200 and 300 series Small Business switches support these phones with a software upgrade. See this link:
    Many thanks,

    My question is whether the 881 (when equipped for PoE) will support Cisco Inline Power, or if it will only support 802.3af.
    Hi Tom,
    I don't have an 880 but I have a large fleet of 890 and all of them have PoE and I know these 890 support 802.3af easily.
