avaya and the 2940

Unanswered Question
Feb 7th, 2007

hi there...

im covering down on a system that has the 2940 switch and and avaya ip phone 4620..

i know that phone works but when i plug it into this switch it doesnt work... or it doesnt power on using the inline power from the switch...

i have tried adding it to a vlan but no luck...

though on a different system it works... i have read the config file and there are no vlans...

so... i know that i am missing something important... but what???


I have this problem too.

The phone will not power on because the Catalyst 2940 does not support the IEEE 802.3af power over ethernet standard required to power the Avaya 2940 IP Phone.
