The recommended number of clients for a device is never a certain number, it depends on the network bandwidth occupied by application running on each of the clients. Here we provide a value for you for reference only (tested using apple devices in an interference free LAN):

We kept a record of the number of client devices and corresponding performance of the Access Point with so many devices connected. Two statuses, Smooth Play and Occasional Error, were defined here to describe the performance of Access Point under test.

7. What is the theoretical approximate passive PoE cable length if I use the passive PoE adapter to power EAP110-Outdoor?

 

The approximate cable length used for passive PoE adapter can be as long as 60 meters theoretically.
