Field Notice 0072
May 10, 2023
In very rare circumstances some models of the DCS-7280SR3-48YC8 and DCS-7280SR3K-48YC8 may exhibit buffer memory related errors. This is caused by a misprogramming of the power profile in the voltage regulator. The incorrect power profile may result in HBM CRC errors and packet drops. The problem is corrected by a new version of the voltage regulator programming delivered through an EOS SWIX.
