PoE on Cisco Catalyst Switch
Posted by CyberData Administrator, Last modified by on 29 January 2015 11:51 AM

I have a Cisco Catalyst Series Switch. How do I set the unit so that it can use 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’s important to keep in mind that CyberData devices are considered third party devices and require switch port setting adjustments.

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

Use the following command to configure inline power:

power inline static max 15400
