Hi,

Recently i come across a project requirement, wherein it was mentioned "Wireless access point required 2 Data outlets".

Has anyone come across this sort of requirements? Is there any standards or codes which states the purpose of 2 Data outlets?

Thanks in advance
SSN

Yes, most manufacturers recommend 2 outlets for the newer AP's
in order to achieve greater speeds.

Our specifications at the University include these requirements,
so all new AP's have two cables.

I write the Div 27 standards for Wireless and I require 2 data jacks and have had that requirement since 2010. The 2nd jack was if another WAP was needed or the first Cat6 cable run had issues. Nowdays, the 2nd jack is used to bond the two Cat6A cables together to get 2.5G or even 5G of bandwidth throughput using MGig switches. No matter what, two jacks is the way to go.

It has nothing to do with the WAP manufacturer stating that 2 jacks are needed.

The bonding of the two Cat6A runs are done in the Cisco MGig switches and in the WAP itself.
