Seeking advice Cisco Catalyst layer 3 SW purchase

Hi all

Currently i am looking to purchase a Cisco Catalyst layer 3 SW for some LAN testing between servers.

And i was at some point told that many Catalyst switches (layer 2 / layer 3) comes with images that contain the same features.

Question one

How does one navigate the model numbers?

  • WS-CxxxxG-24TS-S
  • WS-CxxxxE-24TD-S
  • WS-CxxxxE-24TC-L
  • And so on

Is their a document that shows what the different letters and numbers mean?

Question two

How does one see how old an image is based of its name along with what features it comes with?

Does Cisco have an image archive you can use without paying a support fee somewhere to check the above?

Question three

If Cisco switches / routers come with many of the same features, is the big bucks than for the hardware configuration / specification?

Thanks to all in advance who takes the time to read and or reply back.

Kind regards.
