Hi Team,

We are planning to deploy Ruckus access-point R600 (or) R710 in our customer place along with ZD1200 controller using POE switches.

Now i wants to know the maximumcable length that the access-points supports to receive the POE in high density user area.

Please give some information regarding the same.

Thanks,
Gowtham

Pretty slick PoE calculator page Max, thanks.

I'm not sure about 802.3at to R710 models, but Ruckus QA is testing 802.3af over CAT6 to a single AP
to the standard 100m max cable length.
(BTW, local Frye's spool of Eth cable max length is < 100m, we couldn't do replication test in TSE lab)

i dont recommend to use over 80m+ even if you're using good quality cables
