    cpe510 passthru POE

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I found the term "passthru POE" on the specs page. Does this mean I can connect a EAP-110 access point to the standard RJ45 port of a CPE510 and it will get power?

    Yes, that's possible. The EAP110 draws only 7.7 watts, while the CPE's PoE can support additional 10.5 watts. This is very handy to distribute the WiFi signal of a directional link further with an EAP110-Outdoor (6.3 watts) for example.

    But note that the new CPE510 V2 - at least those for the EU market, which are currently being delivered by distributors and Amazon - does neither have PoE pass-through nor a second Ethernet port. If you're lucky, you probably can still get a device with HW version 1.1 from elsewhere.

    Luckily, I got the V1, if two RJ45 jacks is the visible indicator. Seems like a terrible change to make for the V2.

    i guess maybe they just think the secondary LAN port and PoE Passthrough function are unnecessary and less powerful.

    Looks to me like a decision to save some cents in production costs for the power supply. Interestingly, the WBSx10 and CPEx20 still have a second LAN. It's only the CPEx10 which lacks the second LAN port.
