Auto configuring IoT Devices

Wired IoT devices can also be automatically configured using device profiles. Since the market for IoT devices is vast, with several hundred manufacturers and thousands of devices, instead of hardcoding the LLDP signatures, Aruba switches provide a way for an administrator to create a device type for the IoT devices in their deployment. By associating the custom device type that they create with a device profile, users can leverage the power profiles not only for Aruba devices but also for other manufacturers. The requirement for automatic detection of IoT devices is that they should support LLDP.
