PTM simplifies operations workflow and reduces risk by prescribing how a network is supposed to operate. PTM makes sure that the actual, physical cabling done on a network matches a predefined plan. To detect what ports are plugged into what ports, it uses Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), reading and interpreting LLDP advertisements, parsing out the switch and interface information, and matching it to the DOT-described cabling plan.
