SFP Port use for network back up/fail over

Can the SFP port be used as a network fail over? If we run two network cables to the AP, can we use the one in the SFP port as a back up?

Unfortunately no, because the interface needs to be chosen within the GUI. There is no automatic mechanism to switch interfaces .

Thank you for that answer, Eric.

Supposing we had the cable run, couldn’t we reconfigure from the drop? We are trying to avoid going to the top of the tower again. It may end up not being practical, but as a thought experiment.

I forgot… you could change the AP’s primary ethernet interface via RF… by way of a downstream SM or slave backhaul. This assumes however the the AP is still somehow getting power.
