I have a number if customers that end up being in the same building due to deploying in multi dwelling units (MDUs) which gives me 2 install options. 1) Either install a dedicated radio for each unit or 2) try to work with the landlord to get access to a closet with common power. At the end of the day landlords suck and are simple/greedy/close minded and better to avoid working with anymore then you have to.
Is there any sort of switch that will take PoE in on multiple ports and provide PoE out just on a single port that ends up connected to only 1 c5?
So far I cannot find anything on the market that would allow for power to be provided from a number of sources.
If there was a multi PoE in solution we could avoid the shared closet and also not have to worry about 1 special customer being the one the provides power.
