    Do these switches currently (as of this writing FW: 1.01.01) support LLDP/LLDP-MED features for setting up voice vlan, and auto-assignment of voice vlan to a VoIP phone with LLDP enabled? If not, this would probably be the only snag that would prevent me from integrating these switches into my future deployments. I would love to be able to use these switches for more efficient network deployments that involved Open-Mesh APs and VoIP phones on a multi-vlan network.

    Thomas - LLDP is supported in the switch firmware and enabled by default but we haven't exposed any configuration options in Cloudtrax yet. That will come in a future release.

    VoiceVLAN config via CloudTrax will be coming in the next major update (very likely before the end of the year). LLDP will be looked at next year. As Bryan mentioned, both are supported in the firmware (local config) today, just not in cloud yet.

    Still no QoS in Open Mesh products?

    Denis - we'll have QoS support for switches in the next major update as well (very likely before end of the year)
