I've just started looking into that myself. I know on our switches we can send the ELIN number to the phone from the switch. But I don't know about the alias.

(OK, hijack alert)

. We’ve been thinking about using the network drop label/port alias to help with e911 when we move to VoIP. (Very likely Lync). Is there a way using say LLDP-MED to communicate that to the phone, which can communicate its location to a server. It would also assume that you have a good database of where all of your network drops are located, and I dread the thought of attempting to keep all of this accurate and up-to-date with the amount of renovations etc that we do, but I am curious about the possibilities. We are only legally bound to provide the building location, which is what is done now.
