Hi,

The answer is no, Nexus does not have any WAN interface cards (DS1/DS3). And Nexus is a Data Center switch (core).

The L3 features in the Enterprise license are:

- OSPF v2, and v3 (IPv4 and v6)

- IS-IS

- BGP

- EIGRP

Please see the Licensing section of the data sheet for the features:

HTH,

Forgot to mention, Nexus 5000 does not have any L3 features. It is a L2 switch.

Regards,

jerry
