How to use MAC VLAN on VigorSwitch?

The configuration below will automatically put IP Phones or any device defined by MAC address prefix into a separate VLAN. The switch will accept connections from any other device and put in default non-tagged Vlan. Uplink Trunk ports connecting to a Router or other switch accepting trunk ports are also shown.

 

1. Create Vlan used for VoIP (i.e. 20)

Switch LAN > VLAN Management > Create Vlan >Create VLAN

 

2. Define Ports where phones are to be connected as Hybrid.

(i.e. ports 1 to 8: Untagged Vlan=1,20)

Switch LAN > VLAN Management > Interface Settings > Interface Settings

 

 

Verify configuration down in that same page:

 

3. Define the ports to be used as Uplink (to the router or other switches) as Trunk ports.

(i.e. port 25-26)

Switch LAN > VLAN Management > Interface Settings > Interface Settings

 

Verify configuration down in that same page:

 

 

4. Define Groups containing MACs from Vendors to be automatically set for VLAN

(i.e. Group ID 20  popular IP phone vendors)

Switch LAN > VLAN Management > MAC VLAN > MAC Group

  

5. Bind Group to Vlan

(i.e. Group 20 assign VLAN 20)

Switch LAN > VLAN Management > MAC VLAN > Group Binding

 

 

 

 

6. Connect devices and verify

Switch LAN > MAC Address Table > Dynamic Learned

 

7. OPTIONAL. Set max number of MACs per port.

Security > Port Security > Port Security

 

To avoid rogue devices and want to prevent misuse of ports. Set Port to only accept 1 MAC (if only phone will be connected) or 2 MACs if PC will be connected to the phone PC port.
