Catalyst Naming and Numbering Scheme

Hey everyone,

Is there any rhyme or reason to the names and numbers of the Catalyst switches? Do the number represent anything? What about all the G's and XL's - what do they stand for, if anything?

Thanks

I don’t think there is a consistent way to understand their model numbering scheme.

XL switches run IOS unlike the others which run CatOS.
