[c-nsp] NCS-5001 - sweet...got one in the lab

James, I just got info from my account SE that the NCS-5001/2 on Release XR
6.0.0 does not have RSVP-TE support.  I asked him previously about something
else that isn't supported at the moment (MPLS L3VPN) and he said it's coming
at the end of the month.  So we will see how that goes.

Yea, that's one thing I really despise about Nexus. Seeing EthX/Y is really
boring (must be a cheap data center port thing).

There's just something appealing about seeing spelled out interface names
for different speeds, especially when they get more expensive (HundredGigE
on ASR9K) :-o

I don't particularly have issues with Juniper's "et-" naming, because it's
only used for high-capacity links (25/40/50/100GE) so there's
differenciation there.
It's pretty much given that most networks that rolling et- in the core is
pretty much running 100GE.

BTW, can anybody confirm if NCS 5001 can do RSVP-TE (as a P router) well?
I'd presume it shouldn't have any issues with it, but the datasheet only
lists LDP.
I'm thinking this could be a good replacement for QFX 5k to do lightweight
LSR in the metro/dc access.
