Auto-Detection and Auto-Configuring of Switch Ports

In a scenario where one Instant On device is connected to another, the Instant On system configures the ports with automatic settings to avoid the complexity of manually reconfiguring the port. The auto-detection and auto-configuration feature provides the following capabilities:

  • When a second Instant On device is requesting power on a port, this port is set to Critical PoE priority to maintain the service as much as possible.
  • All networks are made available on that port, in order to ensure that services from another Instant On device can operate freely.
  • If the auto-configured port is connected to another Instant On device, the status of the port is set to Trusted.
  • Users are not permitted to change the Ports settings that interfere with the auto-configuration service.
