Before IEEE 802.3 released the first Power over Ethernet standard (802.3af), vendors had shipped PoE capable switches and PD's. As we are backward compatible Aruba will support both IEEE standard and pre-standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet PD's concurrently. This CLI allows the user to enable or disable pre-802.3af-standard device detection and powering on the specific port. When pre-std-detect is enabled, power will be delivered on PairA only. Default is disabled.

The no form of this command resets the action to default.
