They have since sourced a quote from Huawei (S7700), which Huawei are stating is "more expandable, higher capacity and more cost effective solution" - The S7700 solution is nearly 1/4 of the price of the Nexus....Are they comparable devices?  As it's going to be a very tough sell to convince them to go with the Nexus.

In the Cisco world the Nexus 6000 might work depending on what features
the customer actually uses, I suspect the Cat 6800 is probably not
shipping yet.

From others, Juniper have the EX9200 based on their MX chassis
