Alfred is right, it varies, but I'm having pretty good luck with this approach:

If the snmp sysObjectID of the device is*  
then it is a catalyst. Use the switch mib. Its serial number is at  "."
otherwise get its serial number from the old temporary mib:  "."

Similarly, for the model number:
If the snmp sysObjectID of the device is*  
then it is a  catalyst. Use the switch mib. Its model number is at  "."
otherwise, first try the Entity mib:  "."
If nothing is there, try the old temporary mib: "."

This customer has fairly current, and fairly consistent, devices and code levels, and using this
approach we are able to populate serial number and model fields very consistently.

RE: [nv-l] Serial Number switch

that depends entirely on the brand of your switches.
if you have cisco you might want to look at the ENTITY-MIB and CISCO-ENTITY-ASSET-MIB mibs.
please note that the serial numbers retrieved from these mibs "MIGHT NOT" correspond with those
on the outside of the physical parts.

[nv-l] Serial Number switch


       I need to obtain all the serial numbers of the switches that there is in my network.  Can you give me an idea?
