    From cisco site http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/inte...onyms/ita.html

    multiaccess network
    Network that allows multiple devices to connect and communicate simultaneously.

    load balancing
    In routing, the capability of a router to distribute traffic over all its network ports that are the same distance from the destination address. Good load-balancing algorithms use both line speed and reliability information. Load balancing increases the use of network segments, thus increasing effective network bandwidth.

    split-horizon updates
    Routing technique in which information about routes is prevented from exiting the router interface through which that information was received. Split-horizon updates are useful in preventing routing loops.

    redistribution
    Allowing routing information discovered through one routing protocol to be distributed in the update messages of another routing protocol. Sometimes called route redistribution.

    Catalyst switches were actually originally made by another company other than Cisco. Cisco bought them many moons ago and they used to only run the OS that that company had which was the CatOS. Most higherend switches still support CatOS though.

    So they are non-upgradable switches and can't be considered true cisco switches ?

    Theres an awful lot of them....

    Perhaps rewording this would get you more response, "I read this link and don't understand what it is asking, could someone possible rephrase this or say it another way "

    Right off the bat it seems like your after a handout and don't want to do any real work

    Catalyst is just a name that Cisco uses to brand most of their switches.

    Old Cisco switches ran CatOS. Newer ones run IOS. Some of the high end ones can run either. Some of the larger ones can be converted from CatOS to IOS. Most can't be.

    CatOS -> IOS isn't exactly an "upgrade". Cisco just wanted to unify their routers and switches to both run IOS.

    A CatOS switch will work perfectly okay. It isn't in the exam any longer however so for training/education purposes it isn't useful.
