Hello,

I've been asked to purchase 4 Cisco 24 port switches. The vendor tells
me that he does not have the 2950 XL in stock but does have the 2950's
in stock. What is the difference between these 2 switches?

Huge. The 2950XL is a completely different generation from
around the time of IOS 11.2 . You *really* don't want the 2950XL
these days -- not sold, not supported, much slower than the new
series.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...0800d85e5.html

Cisco reused similar model numbers for a quite different series
that includes:

WS-C2950-12
WS-C2950-24
WS-C2950C-24
WS-C2950G-12-EI (end of sale)
WS-C2950G-24-EI (end of sale)
WS-C2950G-24-EI-DC (still sold)
WS-C2950G-48-EI (end of sale)
WS-C2950ST-24-LRE
WS-C2950ST-8-LRE
WS-C2950SX-24
WS-C2950SX-48-SI
WS-C2950T-24 (end of sale)
WS-C2950T-48-SI

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...628/index.html


You may wish to consider the 2960 or 3560 series, such as
the WS-C3560-24PS, WS_C3560-24TS, WS-C2960-24TC-L, or WS-C2960-24TT-L

What's a 2950XL? Never seen one.

Cisco had some long EOL'd switches, the 2924XL switch line ages ago
that was pretty popular, but long outdated.

The 2950 is quite a bit newer, and still supported.

If you search cisco.com you will find references to the
Catalyst 2950XL series, and to the 3550XL series.
They appear to have existed about the same time as the
Catalyst 2800 series such as the 2820, 2822, and 2828 (which
went EOS April 30 1999). (First time I've ever heard of those...)

Most likely they are typos. Even cisco people make mistakes about
their own product lines, given enough models out there.

The 2924XL and 3524XL were such popular products for their time,
people probably started mixing up lots of different products with these.

I agree. I did a search a while back for 3550XL. A found a couple
of refrences on cisco.com but I came to the conclusion that they
were typos. What they realy meant is 3500XL.
