Hello All,

I have 3 Cisco 3850's LAN Based Software (POE+) switches. I am not 100% familiar with Cisco products, more like 40% familiar and have been managing this network for several years with great success. We recently, for the first time, purchased a VoIP system and I need to get the phones set up. I have put the Digium Phone System on VLAN-55 (Phone System) and the phones (all of them) support CDP and LLDP on them. On the "Small Business Switches" (ex: SG500/SG300, etc.) they have what is called a "Voice-VLAN" where when the switch see's the first 6 octets of a mac-address it auto adds it to VLANX (ex: VLAN-55). On my Cisco 3850 however, it does not (obviously) because it's a full blown OS vs the stripped down version on the SG models.

So instead of me walking around and configuring roughly 60+ phones, is there a way to configure the Cisco 3850 POE+ switches (which phones will be plugged directly in through out the office) to program it and know that when it see's the first six octets of this mac-address to auto add it to this VLAN (ex: VLAN-55)?
