What is a “CAM Address”?

This is the unique specifier to refer to a device in the form of: ‘Net’.’Site’.’Type’.’Device’

  • ‘Net’ is the CAM Network name
  • ‘Site’ is the CAM Site name
  • ‘Type’ is the type of device (more specifically what it is)
  • ‘Device’ is the name of the actual unit itself.

There is also a numerical form of the “CAM Address” – because every unique branch of the tree maps to a unique number.

NOTE: Do not confuse these forms with IP addresses even though they look very similar.
