Unifi to power Cisco OEAP


#1

Anyone (Lee) use of of the smaller Unifi switches to power a Cisco AP? I’m looking at finally getting gig service for the majority of my internal network and considering moving from a kinda-useless Cisco 1811W (which has wireless turned off and is only 10/100 fir the PoE switch module) but I need PoE for the AP.

Looking at the simple UniFi Switch 8 60W:

And maybe a couple of their in-wall APs:

Trying it, so I guess I’ll answer my own question.
