Hi Brandon,

PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) cameras sometimes require more than just 15.4 watts. What's the power requirement of your PTZ camera?

Re: 3550 PoE issue

the product manual indicates 9.2W w/o a heater and 12W with a heater. i've connected the cameras to a 3750-48ps that i had in my spare inventory and they seem to be working on that switch. the issue now is, i don't have 3750's to replace all of the 3550's that i'm using to power these cameras.

Re: 3550 PoE issue

Correct me if I'm wrong...but isnt the 3550-24PWR a Cisco pre-standard PoE switch. If thats the case, you will run into issues trying to power 802.1af devices.

Re: 3550 PoE issue

starting with IOS 12.1(19)EA1c you have the ability to power 802.3af devices.

Re: 3550 PoE issue

Is CDP enabled on the port of the PTZ?

What is the result when you do "sh power inline "?

Re: 3550 PoE issue

it's a non-cisco camera, so CDP isn't going to help me.

i figured out the issue. the vendor installing the cameras pinched and damaged the cable when they installed the housing of the camera. i had to re-crimp a new RJ 45 on the cable and all was good. thanks for your responses.

Re: 3550 PoE issue

i was having this same problem installing IP Phones with catalyst 3550 .

for me (power inline delay shutdown 20 initial 30) on interface X/X level worked perfect
