CER and HP switches

Unanswered Question

I have a couple of clients that deployed HP procurve switches. I understand that they must use CAM based tracking. What I'm wondering is how detailed will they be able to get (Room #, etc.)? I know there are several LLDP-MED commands that can be entered on the HP switch regarding location -- will CER even use this information

ERL are located through Subnets, not the room number. If you want room number, you will have to use a Cisco switch. It uses CDP to pull the MAC address from the switch port. (using CDP)
