I know that this switch has a hardware fault.

But I have some questions.

1. Does the C3550 have TCAM as well as CAM ?

2. What is the CAM Subsystem ?

Hello Kwangwon,

the CAM is used for MAC adddress learning.

actually the CAM is a TCAM : ternary CAM

CAM means : content addressable memory

You need to open an RMA request I think the switch is not usable

Hope to help
