B5 PoE requirements

Hi guys,
Is it entirely technically necessary to use the PoE injector that ships with the B5?
I will be installing new PoE switches at the site (e.g. Cisco Meraki) ; can’t a normal PoE network switch power the B5’s in the same way as it would power a WIFI access point?
Thanks.

The specification sheet states the B5 can take 802.3 at PoE. So as long as your switch can do that and has 20W of power available you should be fine.
