Inline Power

Hi,

I'm new to this field so I have this question:

Can non-Cisco devices use the inline power feature on

a 3500 XL series switch?

Thanks

Denis

Re: Inline Power

What type of devices are you talking about? But if you mean can you plug a computer into the switch then, yes

Re: Inline Power

Currently, I believe the inline power protocol Cisco uses is proprietary to Cisco devices. You cannot plug other devices into the switch and use it as a power source because they do not speak the appropriate CDP 'language'. If a standard, inline power protocol emerges, I'm sure Cisco will implement it.
