Notes:

  • The A Series is PoE only and does not include a power supply. The A42 can be powered with standard 802.3af PoE or passive 18-24V PoE. Bundle with a PoE injector or S Series switch.
  • A Series access points are backward compatible with most Open Mesh devices capable of running 6.4 firmware (check compatibility here). This includes OM2Pv3 and most later OM Series devices along with MR600 and later MR Series devices. The A Series will not mesh with OM5P but can run on the same network.
  • The A42 access point requires a minimum of 6.4.x firmware.
