Hello Hossam,

Can you add the following line to the configuration and re-test:

config lldp_med network_policy add app_type voice vlan vlan_id 30 t_field tagged

Hossam has also logged a case with the Gtac which I am working on.
In the tech-support the voice vlan is called voice1 with a tag of 3
And the configuration has the following line:-

config lldp_med network_policy add app_type voice vlan vlan_id 3 t_field tagged l2_pri_field 0 dscp_field 0


The network capture attached to the case shows that the switch is sending out a network policy for vlan ID 3 but the capture was not started at the very begining.

I have spoken to Hossam and I will work directly with him on this case and I will update this post later.

I mean it looks like the capture may of been started after the Cisco IP phone was already connected. Therefore to ensure that we have captured everything I would like you to gather another capture. I will call you tomorrow morning and run through the steps.

For the configuration of VoIP phones on 800 Series switches see the following article:-

https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Q_A/LLDP-MED-configuration-for-800-series-switch

We have tested various VoIP phones such as Siemens (Unify) and Polycom CX600.
Regarding the issue with the Cisco 7911G I am continuing to work with Hossam via a Gtac case.
