And how many watts of power does your IP camera need?   5-10 seconds sounds like it's not getting enough power and constantly rebooting.

my camera needs 48 watts, of course i want to use the PoE connection on my switch because i don't have any room for power suplly.

A 3550 can only deliver 15.4 watts of PoE power per port max.  So, there you go.

It would be more cost-effective to just use the power brick there, brother.
