it's just saying it's backwards compatible with an AT power source (which it should be, it's in the AF spec). I just double checked the full user manual and start guide off of Ruckus' site, the r700 does not negotiate or support AT power. It even directly says "The R700 is a Class 3 device", and even the DC input jack is rated for~15 watts topsIf you look at the bottom of the 3rd page, it says, "Two 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports with 802.3af/at PoE."
My understanding is that it can do a lower performance mode to be compatible with old switches (802.3af mode). I want high performance.
AT power support was introduced with the R710 and R610, those are the ones that reduce features if on AF - "Note that if 802.3af PoE is used to power the R610, the feature set is reduced, as follows: • 2.4 GHz radio chains reduced to 2x3 (2-chain transmit at 21dBm aggregate power, 3-chain receive)" - when this happens it also displays a notification in the UI
