Catalyst 3750 (Lord of the Rings) Components and Architecture

One of the newest members of the Catalyst family of switches is the 3750 series, codename Lord of the Rings. The 3750 series is made up of fixed-configuration switches allowing expansion through the interconnection or “stacking” of additional switches into what Cisco terms a cluster rather than through the addition of line modules as with the Catalyst 5000 and 6500 series.

The Catalyst 3750 series offers four models pictured in Figure 3-14 and explained in Table 3-6.
