Depends on the end-devices.  The 3550 can support Class 1 only.

Resurrecting an old post,

Resurrecting an old post, this might help someone. Today I tried connecting a Cisco 9951 phone to my 3550 inline power switch and it just kept going up and down with lights flashing and phone didn't come up, this reminded me an old problem faced in 2007 when we deployed Cisco Aironet Lightweight Access Points with WLAN controller.

I used the below command under the interface and it worked, the cisco phone is powered up and I am going to configure it with CUCM now.

int fa0/xx

power inline delay shutdown 20 initial 25

You may want to tweak and test the timers but the above worked for me.

HTH,

Four.  Go here and look under "Table 3. PoE Classes".

Several workarounds.  You can use 1:1 power injectors or you can use mid-span powered switch.

Ok.  Looks likes the 3550 can support up to 15.0 PoE.  Make sure your cable is terminated correctly.  Another way to check is to plug the IP phone directly to the switch.

I'm suspecting you have faulty patch cable.  Have you tried other copper cabling?
