Location data for LLDP-MED devices

You can configure a switch port to advertise location data for the switch itself, the physical wall-jack location of the endpoint (recommended), or the location of a DHCP server supporting the switch, endpoint, or both. You also have the option of configuring these different address types:

  • Civic address: physical address data such as city, street number, and building information
  • ELIN (Emergency Location Identification Number): an emergency number typically assigned to MLTS (Multiline Telephone System) Operators in North America
  • Coordinate-based location: attitude, longitude, and altitude information (Requires configuration via an SNMP application.)
