Network policies TLVs

A network policy in the context of LLDP-MED is a device’s VLAN configuration and associated Layer 2 and Layer 3 configurations.

LLDP-MED network policies TLV include:

  • VLAN ID
  • VLAN tagged or untagged status
  • Layer 2 priority
  • DSCP value

An integer represents the application type (the Type integer shown in the following table), which indicates a device function for which a unique network policy is defined. An individual LLDP-MED network policy TLV is generated for each application type that you use with OS10 commands (see Advertise LLDP-MED TLVs ).

  • NOTE: Signaling is a series of control packets that are exchanged between an endpoint device and a network connectivity device to establish and maintain a connection. These signal packets might require a different network policy than the media packets for which a connection is made. In this case, configure the signaling application.
