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

Enabling PoE pre-standard detection

Depending on the FortiSwitch model, you can manually change the PoE pre-standard detection setting on the global level or on the port level. Starting with FortiOS 6.4.5, the factory default setting for poe-pre-standard-detection is disable.

Note

PoE pre-standard detection is a global setting for the following FortiSwitch models: FSR-112D-POE, FS-548DFPOE, FS-524D-FPOE, FS-108D-POE, FS-224D-POE, FS-108E-POE, FS-108E-FPOE, FS-124E-POE, and FS-124EFPOE. For the other FortiSwitch PoE models, PoE pre-standard detection is set on each port.

On the global level, set poe-pre-standard-detection with the following commands:

config switch-controller managed-switch
	edit <FortiSwitch_serial_number>
		set poe-pre-standard-detection {enable | disable}
	next
end

On the port level, set poe-pre-standard-detection with the following commands:

config switch-controller managed-switch
	edit <FortiSwitch_serial_number>
		config ports
			edit <port_name>
				set poe-pre-standard-detection {enable | disable}
			next
		end
	next
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
