Re: why do we say cisco switch 2950 or 3560 as a catalyst

I may be wrong, but I believe that CATALYST was the product family name used by a company called Kalpana. Cisco purchased Kalpana 12 years ago to get their ethernet switching technology (and quickly stopped making their 'cut-through' switches), but the product family name lives on.
