      This project is targeted to compare two major switching architectures provided by CISCO. CISCO is a network device manufacturer who has contributed to networking world by inventing many networking protocols which are used to improve the network performance and network health. In this document the switching architectures CATALYST and NEXUS are compared. All the available features in each architectures are listed and working of the supported protocols is explained in detail. The document also considers three network scenarios and explains which architecture is best suited and explains why in detail.
