Cisco Catalyst 2900 and PoE for Amplifier
Posted by CyberData Administrator, Last modified by CyberData Administrator on 03 February 2015 02:56 PM

I have a Cisco Catalyst 2900 series switch. How do I set the unit so that it can use the PoE (under 15.4w) instead of an external power source?

There are known PoE limitations with third party devices on the Cisco Catalyst series switches. This includes the 2500, 3500, and 6500 series switches. It would be best to avoid using the Cisco Catalyst series switches to power the amplifier and use an 802.3at injector. If you have a 2960-S series switch with PoE+ ports, we recommend that you use those instead of PoE and set the amplifier to High Power mode.

High Power mode DIP switch settings:
1 - ON
2 - N/A
3 - OFF
4 - ON

Be sure to turn power policing off if it has been enabled on your switch. Power policing is disabled by default. Also, configure your port for no shutdown.

Use the following command to configure inline power:
power inline static max 30000
