The BACnet/IP network architectures listed in Network architecture recommend the use of managed switches. The managed switches must be configured to provide the behavior required by the Metasys BACnet/IP network. The various features and functions used by the Metasys BACnet/IP network are described below. An example of how to configure each feature and function is also provided.

Important: The examples provided are intended to provide general guidance for configuring these features and must not be treated as complete detailed procedures for configuring a managed switch.

The examples are based on the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS), a product of Cisco Systems, Inc. The examples assume the user has already enabled privileged EXEC mode with the enable command. Other manufacturers' switches support most, if not all, of the following features but would use a different command set to configure the features.
