NAME
       LLDP-MED - Show / manipulate MED TLV configurations

SYNOPSIS
       lldptool -t -i ethx -V [ TLV_TYPE ] enableTx

       lldptool -T -i ethx -V [ TLV_TYPE ] enableTx = { yes | no }

       lldptool -T -i ethx -V LLDP-MED devtype = { class1 | class2 | class3 |
       none }

       lldptool -t -i ethx -V LLDP-MED devtype

TLV_TYPE : = {LLDP-MED | medCap | medPolicy | medLoc | medPower | medHwRev |
       medFwRev | medSwRev | medSerNum | medManuf | medModel | medAssetID }


DESCRIPTION
       The LLDP-MED extensions support the Link Layer Discovery Protocol for
       Media Endpoint Devices defined in the ANSI/TIA-1057-2006 document. Each
       TLV can be configured as a class1 , class2 or class3 device. Class I
       devices are the most basic class of Endpoint Device, Class II devices
       support media stream capabilities and Class III devices directly
       support end users of the IP communication system. See ANS-TIA-1057 for
       clarification of class types.



ARGUMENTS
       enableTx
              Enables the TLV to be transmitted

       devtype
              Set or query the class type of the device.


TLV_TYPE
       List of supported TLV specifiers applicable to Media Endpoint Devices.


       LLDP-MED
              apply arguments to all supported MED TLVs.


       medCAP LLDP-MED Capabilities TLV


       medPolicy
              LLDP-MED Network Policy TLV


       medLoc LLDP-MED Location TLV


       medPower
              LLDP-MED Extended Power-via-MDI TLV


       medHwRev
              LLDP-MED Hardware Revision TLV


       medFwRev
              LLDP-MED Firmware Revision TLV


       medSwRev
              LLDP-MED Software Revision TLV


       medSerNum
              LLDP-MED Serial Number TLV


       medManuf
              LLDP-MED Manufacturer Name TL


       medModel
              LLDP-MED Model Name TLV


       medAssetID
              LLDP-MED Asset ID TLV


EXAMPLE & USAGE
       Enable class1 MED device on eth2
              lldptool -T -i eth2 -V LLDP-MED enableTx=yes devtype=class1

       Query class type of MED on eth2
              lldptool -t -i eth2 -V LLDP-MED -c devtype

       Query transmit state of medPolicy on device eth2
              lldptool -t -i eth2 -V medPolicy -c enableTx
