 +Secondary UAP Ethernet ports don't provide PoE passthrough (to run current to a second powered device), but they do support data passthrough. It serves as a bridged interface between main / secondary Ethernet port.
 +
 +This means users can connect the PoE cable to the main Ethernet port to supply power, then connect another, non-PoE device (e.g., IP camera, extra UAP) to the secondary Ethernet port to bridge connections.

 +Presumably it is to allow you to pass-through data. It's very useful when you have a cable already laid over your drop-ceiling and going to a wall outlet. You would just cut the cable in the false-ceiling and terminate both ends on RJ45'​s. The AP acts as a small switch allowing you to still use the wall jack.
