1. Introduction
These Application Notes describe the Power Over Ethernet configuration of the Extreme Networks Summit X250e-48p Switch and Extreme Networks Summit X450e-24p Switch, to support the Avaya 9608, 9611G, 9621G, and 9641G IP Telephones registered to Avaya Aura Session Manager and Avaya Aura Communication Manager. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows both power and data to be simultaneously carried over standard Ethernet cables. PoE-enabled Ethernet switches can supply power directly to Ethernet devices, thereby simplifying installation and removing the need for separate power supplies for those devices. The IEEE 802.3af standard defines the mechanisms for Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), such as PoE-enabled Ethernet switches, to detect, classify, and supply power to Powered Devices (PDs), such as PoE-enabled IP telephones. The Extreme Networks Summit X250e-48p switch provides 48 ports with PoE. The Extreme Networks Summit X450e-24p switch provides 24 ports with PoE. The 96x1 IP telephones are part of the 96xx family. They build on existing 96xx functionality and user interface concepts. They run on a Wind River Linux Operating System and provide better performance at a lower cost than the 96xx phones. The 96x1 IP telephones include the 9608, 9611G, 9621G, and 9641G models.

3. Configuration of the Avaya IP Telephones


There is no configuration requirement on the Avaya IP telephones to use PoE. For details on configuring Avaya Aura Session Manager, Avaya Aura Communication Manager, or Avaya IP Telephones, consult References [1], [2], and [3].

4. Configuration of the Extreme Network Switches


The configuration steps below focus on the basic commands used for PoE on the Extreme switches. Additional configuration details are available in the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide [4]. The Extreme Networks Summit X250e-48p and Extreme Networks Summit X450e-24p use Extreme XOS, and therefore the commands listed here apply to both switches. PoE is enabled by default in the Extreme Networks Summit switches. If the configuration has changed, PoE can be enabled on a port by using the command enable inline-power port. The example below enables PoE on port 19.
X250e-48p # enable inline-power port 19

If the port parameter is not specified, PoE will be enabled on all the ports.
X250e-48p # enable inline-power

The command disable inline-power can be used to disable PoE on a port when a device attached to it does not use PoE. The example below disables PoE on port 19.
X250e-48p # disable inline-power port 19

If the port parameter is not specified, PoE will be disabled on all the ports.

X250e-48p # disable inline-power

5. Observations
The following table shows power classification and measured power reported by Extreme Networks Summit X450e-24p and Extreme Networks Summit X250e-48p switches. IP Telephones were connected directly to the switch. Cables of different lengths were used. Cable length and impedance affects power usage, so the measurements listed here may vary based on the cable used. In addition, the power measured for a given port may vary slightly from time to time but will stay in a small range. The power measurements reported here are either the most reported value or the average value and are only for reference purposes.

6. Verification Steps
When the IP Telephones are properly powered, the IP Telephones should register and receive dial tone when they are off-hook. If the IP Telephones are not receiving power, check the cable used and check the port configuration to ensure PoE was enabled on the port. The show inline-power config port command can be used to see if PoE is enabled on a port. The example below shows PoE is enabled on port 19.
X250e-48p # show inline config port 19 Port 19 Config Enabled Operator Limit 15400 mW Priority Low Label

The show inline-power info port command can be used to see the amount of power being delivered and the Class. The example below shows this information for port 19.
X250e-48p # show inline info port 19 Port 19 State delivering Class class1 Volts 50.1 Curr (mA) 40 Power (Watts) 2.0 Fault None
