Is it possible to concatenate two AP 3865e in a row as the following design

we would like to go from

  • “LAN Switch” to “PoE Injector (60W)”
  • “PoE Injector (60W)” to “first AP 3865e (LAN Port 1)”
  • “first AP 3865e (LAN Port 2)” to “second AP 3865e (LAN Port 1)”

The distance between LAN-Switch Port to the first AP is less the 100  meters

and the distance between the first AP to the second AP are less then 100 meters

Not supported - below the statement that I've rx from my post...

"Yes, the AP3865e sources power only from LAN#1 (POE Input). The second port (LAN#2/”Pwr Out”) is designed to eventually (not yet supported) be able to itself provide 802.3af (POE) power to some other chained device (example a security camera). Because of this design goal, the AP3865e does not support redundant power supplies, however, you can use the two ports for link aggregation."
