How is power allocation prioritized?

There are two ways that PoE power is prioritized:

  • Using a priority class method, a power priority of Low (the default), High, or Critical is assigned to each enabled PoE port.

  • Using a port-number priority method, a lower-numbered port has priority over a higher-numbered port within the same configured priority class, For example, port A1 has priority over port A5 if both are configured with High priority.
