There are many businesses today that have chosen Cisco Catalyst models to provide core/distribution layer services to their infrastructure. Notable models include Cisco’s catalyst 4500, 6500, and 6880 models. A new family of Catalyst have been recently rolled out to spearhead the next generation campus requirements where customers want to have “smart” campuses with many more analytical features and to be future ready. With the new Catalyst 9000 series, Cisco has leveraged the programmability in their IOS-XE software and implemented UDAP 2.0 features. The 9000 series model is really an enhanced version of its family switches that being the 4500 chassis and 3850. Currently, the Catalyst 9k family is comprised of the 9200, 9300, 9400, and 9500 series models.
