Configuring PoE

NOTE: The following PoE CLI commands are available starting in FortiSwitchOS 3.3.0.

This section covers the following topics:

Enabling PoE on the port

config switch-controller managed-switch

edit <FortiSwitch_serial_number>

config ports

edit <port_name>

set poe-status {enable | disable}

end

end

For example:

config switch-controller managed-switch

edit S524DF4K15000024

config ports

edit port1

set poe-status enable

end

end

Resetting the PoE port

Power over Ethernet (PoE) describes any system that passes electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet cabling. Doing this allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices (for example, wireless access points, IP cameras, and VoIP phones).

The following command resets PoE on the port:

execute switch-controller poe-reset <FortiSwitch_serial_number> <port_name>

Displaying general PoE status

get switch-controller <FortiSwitch_serial_number> <port_name>

The following example displays the PoE status for port 6 on the specified switch:

# get switch-controller poe FS108D3W14000967 port6

Port(6) Power:3.90W, Power-Status: Delivering Power

Power-Up Mode: Normal Mode

Remote Power Device Type: IEEE802.3AT PD

Power Class: 4

Defined Max Power: 30.0W, Priority:3

Voltage: 54.00V

Current: 78mA
