Hi Sathish,

For the R730 Lan1/Port1 port to work the AP must be powered by PoE+ (802.3at+ 35W (high Power) and the Ethernet port will need LLDP enabled so the AP negotiates the power.

From the quick start guide: https://support.ruckuswireless.com/documents/2443-ruckus-r730-ap-quick-setup-guide-qsg

The PoE switch port must run link layer
very protocol (LLDP) power over Ethernet/MDI
(PoE+) in order for the R730 to operate in full-power
mode. This may require enabling both LLDP and
Power via MDI (dot3) on the switch, if available.

Ruckus PoE+ injector: 902-1170-XX00
You can also use the high power (60W) Ruckus PoE injector

You can verify the power delivered to the AP using the following AP command:

rkscli: get power-mode

I hope this is helpful,

Thanks for choosing Ruckus Networks, now part of Commscope

Thanks for the info Albert. I have Tenda TE-POE30G-AT Gigabit PoE Injector(802.3at) which is only 30W
