If you plan to use more than 60 feet of outdoor cable I recommend that you get the Tycon DC to DC POE shown above.  By boosting the voltage going up the ethernet cable to your Bullet or Groove you will insure stable operation and possible shortening of the life of the device due to heating caused by low input voltage at the antenna. 

If you plan to use the AC/DC power supply that comes with the Mikrotik hardware then the Tycon POE is not necessary.
