lldp config medPortLocation


[no] lldp config  <PORT-LIST>  medPortLocation  Address-Type 


Configures location of emergency call data the switch advertises per port in the location_id TLV. This TLV is for use by LLDP-MED endpoints employing location-based applications. Enables configuration of a physical address on a switch port and allows up to 75 characters of address information.


The switch allows one medPortLocation entry per port (without regard to type.) Configuring a new medPortLocation entry of any type on a port replaces any previously configured entry on that port.

Parameters and options


A two-character country code, as defined by ISO 3166. Some examples include FR (France), DE (Germany), and IN (India.) This field is required in a civic-addr command. (For a complete list of country codes, see http://www.iso.org.)


A single-digit number specifying the type of device to which the location data applies: 0: Location of DHCP server 1: Location of switch 2: Location of LLDP-MED endpoint (recommended application) This field is required in a civic-addr command.

Type/Value Pairs [CA-TYPE|CA-VALUE]

A series of data pairs, each composed of a location data "type" specifier and the corresponding location data for that type. That is, the first value in a pair is expected to be the civic address "type" number (CA-TYPE), and the second value in a pair is expected to be the corresponding civic address data (CA-VALUE.)

For example, if the CA-TYPE for "city name" is "3," the type/value pair to define the city of Paris is "3 Paris."

Multiple type/value pairs can be entered in any order, although Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that multiple pairs be entered in ascending order of the CA-TYPE.

When an emergency call is placed from a properly configured class 3 endpoint device to an appropriate PSAP, the country code, device type, and type/value pairs configured on the switch port are included in the transmission. The "type" specifiers are used by the PSAP to identify and organize the location data components in an understandable format for response personnel to interpret.

A civic-addr command requires a minimum of one type/value pair, but typically includes multiple type/value pairs as needed to configure a complete set of data describing a given location.

CA-TYPE: This is the first entry in a type/value pair and is a number defining the type of data contained in the second entry in the type/value pair (CA-VALUE.) Some examples of CA-TYPE specifiers include:

  • 3=city

  • 6=street (name)

  • 25=building name

(Range: 0 - 255)

CA-VALUE: This is the second entry in a type/value pair and is an alphanumeric string containing the location information corresponding to the immediately preceding CA-TYPE entry.

Strings are delimited by either blank spaces, single quotes (' … '), or double quotes ("… ".)

Each string should represent a specific data type in a set of unique type/value pairs comprising the description of a location, and each string must be preceded by a CA-TYPE number identifying the type of data in the string.


A switch port allows one instance of any given CA-TYPE. For example, if a type/value pair of 6 Atlantic (to specify "Atlantic" as a street name) is configured on port A5 and later another type/value pair of 6 Pacific is configured on the same port, Pacific replaces Atlantic in the civic address location configured for port A5.

elin-addr emergency-number

This feature is intended for use in ECS applications to support class 3 LLDP-MED VoIP telephones connected to a switch in an MLTS infrastructure.

An ELIN is a valid NANP format telephone number assigned to MLTS operators in North America by the appropriate authority. The ELIN is used to route emergency (E911) calls to a PSAP.
