Are you implying that Segment Routing will not be supported on the
ME3600X switches?

At Cisco Live a few months ago the guys from the SR team mentioned
that ME3600 will support SR (iirc it even was on their slides showing
best-pratices setups, along with the usual ASR9k).

Thats what we suspected on the list already, but strangely at Cisco
Live this year everyone was still referring to ME3600/3800 along with
ASR9k (when talking about relevant topics like Carrier Ethernet,
L2/L3VPN/MPLS, etc).

Maybe you guys should consider giving a talk about your platforms and
its roadmaps at Cisco Live (there are certainly a lot ASR9k talks).

I would rather like to see some IOS XR on those *new* platforms, tbh.
I guess that won't happen any time soon.
