LLDP-MED - Cisco and ShoreTel
Posted on 2010-08-19
I have deployed Cisco 2975 switches and ShoreTel 565 phones. I would like to enable LLDP to manage the PoE requirements of the phones as statically assigning a max value is getting old fast. Cisco TAC says the switches are configured properly for LLDP. The ShoreTel phone seems to only have the option to enable LLDP, which it is by default. At present a "show power inline" still says that the phone has been allocated 15.4 watts (the max) yet the phone only needs about 6 or 7 watts realistically to run. Has anyone been down this road with Cisco and ShoreTel?
