LLDP-MED Commands

The following are the LLDP-MED (Media Endpoint Discovery) commands.

Dell EMC Networking OS LLDP-MED commands are an extension of the set of LLDP TLV advertisement commands.

As defined by ANSI/TIA-1057, LLDP-MED provides organizationally specific TLVs (Type Length Value), so that endpoint devices and network connectivity devices can advertise their characteristics and configuration information. The Organizational Unique Identifier (OUI) for the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) is 00-12-BB.
  • LLDP-MED Endpoint Device — any device that is on an IEEE 802 LAN network edge, can communicate using IP, and uses the LLDP-MED framework.
  • LLDP-MED Network Connectivity Device — any device that provides access to an IEEE 802 LAN to an LLDP-MED endpoint device, and supports IEEE 802.1AB (LLDP) and TIA-1057 (LLDP-MED). The Dell EMC Networking system is an LLDP-MED network connectivity device.
Regarding connected endpoint devices, LLDP-MED provides network connectivity devices with the ability to:
  • manage inventory
  • identify physical location
  • identify network policy
