A tag for questions related to Cisco's Catalyst line of switches.

Catalyst is the brand name for a line of network switches sold by Cisco Systems. These are generally Ethernet switches but other interface types are available. Like many Cisco products the switch line initially began at companies that Cisco acquired, rebranding their products as various versions of the Catalyst product line. Many Catalyst switches also have layer-3 routing capabilities.
