"Catalyst" is the name of line of products, manufactured by Cisco. It's like
Toyota *Prius*, Toyota *Camry* or Toyota *4Runner*. "Cisco Catalyst" name
represents a wide variety of network switches, not routers.

Hi Ravi,

The Cisco "Catalyst Switch Brand" was derived from Cisco's October
24th,1994, acquisition of Kalpana, Inc., a privately held manufacturer
of LAN switching products.

Kalpana's product line consisted of modular and stackable platforms
which extended the usability and data capacity of existing Ethernet
LANs.

The market opportunity for Cisco's acquisition was the Catalyst 3000
Stackable Switching Solution.

Hope this helps.
