All Enterasys Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable switches.

Discussion
The Auto / IEEE are Enterasys naming conventions for the inline power detection mode (PowerDsine detection methods).

Option IEEE: Only IEEE 802.3af detection method is used. This means that only PoE devices which are compliant with IEEE 802.3af standard will be detected.

Option AUTO: Supports both IEEE802.3af and PowerDsine pre-standard detection methods. First IEEE detection will run and if fails it will look for a pre-standard device as well. So this option will support both pre-standard and IEEE 802.3af standard based PoE devices like IP phones etc.
