As part of the “What’s in a Box” series, introducing Arista’s AP-W318 (Hospitality, Wall-plate AP), Arista announced AP-W318 during the #MFD9 – Arista Presents. Always helpful knowing what all the different pieces come in the box when purchasing hardware. Take a look at the Arista AP-W318, What’s in a Box.
AP-W318 comes with a simple mounting bracket, screws, and anchors. Installing the mounting bracket was simple; slide the mounting bracket in the notches and tighten the screw.
AP can be powered on using 12V power brick or PoE 802.3bt for full functionality and 802.3at for reduced functionality.
I am a little confused on the interfaces and will need to get more information on which interface is what. For now I’m assuming the following:
- 3 x 1 Gig on the bottom (1 x White and 2 x black)
- 1 x 1 Gig Uplink in the back (black)
- 2 x 2.5 Gig 1 on the side, one in the back?(Blue???)
- 1 x USB
- 1 x Console (Yellow)
- 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz
- No dedicated WIPS.
- According to the DS, it is currently showing up “Pending” under Wi-Fi Alliance Certification
