Does Cisco 2700 AP work with Cisco unmanaged switches?

Hi,

Can you guys please help me with a rather basic question:

 

Can 2700/3700 APs work with the unmanaged POE switches? and what would be the result if 2702e is connected to a 10/100 port of a POE switch? would it still work?

 

I would really appreciate if someone could also give a link to supporting document.

 

Thank you.

Yes it will work

It would only work in LWAPP mode, i.e controller based.

It won't work as autonomous (i.e without a controller) as the unmanaged switch will not be capable of 802.1q tagging.

I missed this part :-)

But also, is 2700 works in Autonomus mode ??

I know 2702 does't

 

But as per following link, 1700, 2700 and 3700 all work in autonomous mode.

Can you please clarify on that?
