We need to power 7 WAPs (inside our office) and we are looking at
these options as a midspan injector rather than a powered switch:
4XEM EPOEMS12 – $359.99 on the Dell web site
D-Link DWL-P1012 - $469.99 on the Dell web site
PowerDsine PD-3512 - $579.99 at CDW; not carried by Dell
Currently the 5 WAPs we have online are using individual PowerDsine
units but we wanted a better, cleaner solution as our wifi grows.
Hope that helps.
