This is a very broad question which can't be covered in a single post.

My first suggestion is getting to know everything about each model.

Start by going to

and click on each product family.

Second suggestion is giving your Cisco Sales rep a call, he will come onsite and show you how you can maximize your network environment and what product matches your criteria better.
