Re: Nexus emulation? Anyone?

I am understanding that more as I am researching. I didn't realize there was a separation between 1000v and [5,7]K. I thought Nexus was Nexus. I should have known not to simplify it to that level. :) So I'm understanding more the differences as well as why I won't be expecting to find a good way to emulate the [5,7]K anytime soon. Thank you all for your comments.

You couldn't use Titanium to judge/discuss the nexus family as a whole either. Aside from 1KV, all the nexus products use ASIC hardware specific to that platform/linecard and no NXOS software emulator exists that mimics those behaviors.

Titanium as they call the NX-OS simulator is not available to the public
