Use LLDP with Cameras

Learn how Verkada cameras use LLDP

Updated yesterday

Verkada cameras support the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). LLDP is a standard link layer protocol used across various network devices to advertise their identity, capabilities, and neighbors in a local area network (LAN).

The primary value in using LLDP to manage network integrations and for troubleshooting. For example, a network admin can quickly identify which Verkada device is connected to a particular switch port, or configure a policy to automatically reconfigure the port based on specific LLDP information.

Specifically, Verkada cameras advertise this information every 30 seconds (see frame examples below):

  • Device ID

  • Firmware revision

  • Serial number

  • Manufacturer name (Verkada)

  • Model name

  • Extreme Fabric Connect TLV

  • Auto-negotiation capabilities
