Hi, CatOS is an old eol layer 2 operating system used befor IOS.

In my opinion there is no reason to use catos today. It's not suppored from a lot of devices.

Re: CatOS

Yes, CatOS is in end of life:

2008 was the last year of selling for CatOS.

 

Probably you can find some old CatOS device on the market of used/refurbished devices.

Re: CatOS

There are still some handful of networks that have CatOS switches in them.
The reason why they're still there is because they don't have the funds to upgrade them.
