Hierarchy Level


For Link Layer Discovery Protocol–Media Endpoint Device (LLDP-MED), configure the location types and values that comprise the location information advertised from the device to the MED. This information is used during emergency calls to identify the location (civic or postal address) of the caller.

For further information about the types and values that can be used to comprise the location, refer to RFC 4776, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCPv4 and DHCPv6) Option for Civic Addresses Configuration Information. A subset of those types, with sample values, is provided below.




ca-type type

Specify category codes that together with values represent information about the civic or postal address of the caller’s location. The address is divided into information types, with each information type represented by a code. Some of the codes, with corresponding sample values for the ca-value option, are:

  • 0—A code that specifies the language used to describe the location.

  • 16—The leading-street direction, such as “N”.

  • 17—A trailing street suffix, such as “SW”.

  • 18—A street suffix or type, such as “Ave” or “Road”.

  • 19—A house number, such as “6450”.

  • 20—A house-number suffix, such as “A” or “1/2”.

  • 21—A landmark, such as “Stanford University”.

  • 22—Additional location information, such as “South Wing”.

  • 23—The name and occupant of a location, such as “Carrillo's Holiday Market”.

  • 24—A house-number suffix, such as “95684”.

  • 25—A building structure, such as “East Library”.
