Can someone please help??
I am installing a C5x PTP and using new equipment straight out of box. I configured and tested this in my office and everything worked fine. Then we took it to the install locations and installed. We have them on about a 75 ft Cat6 Shielded outdoor cable run that has been tested and certified with my test equipment. However, I have tried the 24Volt Mimosa POE which is what I set the units up in my office and the ethernet just keep trying to come up but just blinks and shows cable unplugged. I then got on chat with Mimosa and was told to use the 46V Passive POE like the one that is used with the B5’s so I did but got same results. I am now told to use the 56Volt POE like the ones that are shipped with the A5C AP’s. So does anyone know what is going on? My vendor sold me the 24V POE’s and said they would work which they do using short cables. I haven’t tried the BLACK 56Volt POE yet, but is this the only one that will make them work with longer cable runs? I assume that the voltage is dropping the further the cable run. Other than that, I have no idea. The C5x is an inexpensive radio and I would hate to have almost as much in the cost of a POE as the radio itself.
Anyone else have this problem?
If anyone has deployed the C5x with a cable run of over 75ft, could you please let me know which POE you used.
