I like Ubiquiti's access points, UniFi, and the server for that. Only thing I don't like about that is the fact they don't use standard PoE.
Fluidmesh - Offer a 802.11AF adaptor
Mikrotik / routerboard
UBNT also offers a 802.11AF adaptor

Very old Cisco. In their defense 802.11af wasn't a standard until 2003 and they were making the first POE equipment circa 2000. They switched over to 802.11af when it was ratified. You can find references to it in their documentation that refers to it as 'pre-standard' POE. Pretty rare to still see gear in the field that is old enough for it to be an issue. Their early IP phones used it.
Also Cisco now has gear that extends past 802.11at power limits and maxes out at 60W. But only the 60W max is non-standard, the switches can power regular 802.11at/af devices as well. Cisco calls it uPOE and I'd guess it will be the next POE standard fairly soon.

Need to be a little careful with even 802.3at/af. Most equipment supports Mode B only (most common) but there is a bunch of Mode A injectors on the market. The difference is on which pins the power is supplied.
A pair of Avalan radios I used had 18VDC power supplys and injectors to send the power up the UTP.
